How to Become a Fellow

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Toigo MBA Fellow. We welcome the opportunity to begin a dialogue with you about a career in finance, obtaining an MBA and how becoming a Toigo Fellow can provide a catapult for your career. Here are three key steps to consider before applying:

  • Explore. Review the list of finance careers. Toigo Alumni work in a broad array of careers—and so can you.
  • Seek & FindReview the list of MBA programs Toigo Fellows are currently attending or have graduated from. If you’re interested in connecting with a Toigo at one of our target schools, let us know and we can make the introduction.
  • Get Smart. Review our FAQs (available soon), Application Timeline, watch the MBA Fellowship Info Session. There are some great tips for submitting a stand-out application.
  • Apply Early! Completed applications will be reviewed upon receipt and qualified applicants will receive early notification to move on to the next round of the process (pre-screening via Skype). You do not need to wait for your acceptance into an MBA program to apply (if you are extended a Fellowship offer, you will be required to confirm your acceptance into a full time MBA program). You are encouraged to apply even if your MBA application notification date is beyond the Toigo application deadline.
