Only three slots will be available, and admission will be highly selective. Applicants meeting minimum standards in terms of admission requirements are not guaranteed admission. Those applicants who can clearly articulate career goals and whose interests closely align with those of our faculty in sustainable business practice, consumer culture theory, ethics, entrepreneurship, and macromarketing will be favored in the admission process.
