The Drucker School of Management operates on a priority deadline cycle. Applications are strongly encouraged by these dates in order to assure maximum consideration for both admission and fellowships. Once the priority deadlines have passed, the school will continue to review applications for qualified students on a competitive, space-available basis.
Students are admitted to the program for the Fall semester start term only.*
Below are the priority application deadlines for the Financial Engineering Program. Apply by the priority deadlines to receive greater fellowship consideration.
- November 1 - Early Action and International Priority Deadline**
- February 1 - Round 1
- April 1 - Round 2
- June 1- Round 3
Applications received after June 1st will be reviewed for admission on space-available basis
The Early Action deadline is a non-binding deadline for applicants whose first choice is Claremont Graduate University's Financial Engineering Program.
Rounds 1 and 2 are comparable in terms of your chances of admission. Round 3 is slightly more competitive, although there will be sufficient room for strong candidates. Applicants who apply after Round 3 will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
*MBA/FE dual degree candidates may begin the program in the Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters with approval of the Director of Management Programs.
**International applicants are encouraged to submit their applications by November 1st for the opportunity to be invited for an in-person interview with Drucker recruiter who may be travelling in your area.
