Application Basics

  • UC Application
  • GMP supplemental application
  • Possible interview

Supplemental Essay

Once you submit your UC Application, you will receive an additional email from UC Berkeley’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions asking you to write and submit a supplemental essay about your interest in the Global Management Program. Expect to receive this email 5-7 business days after submitting your UC Application. From there, you will have until 11:59pm PST, January 3 to submit your supplemental essay. Failure to submit your essay by the deadline will remove you from consideration to the GMP.


After the GMP selection committee has reviewed your UC Application and Supplemental Essay, you may be invited to participate in a virtual interview. Interviews are by invitation only, and if selected you will receive an invitation by late February/early March. Candidates who are asked to interview will sign up for a 20 minute time slot to interview with a faculty or staff member.
