Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) Entrepreneurs Masters Program (EMP) Class of 2017 Application

BEFORE you begin the EMP application process please read the application instructions below carefully. In order for your application to be considered, you must submit 1) this completed data form; 2) payment information for the non-refundable application deposit of US$2000; and 3) a personal statement totaling no more than two (2) pages. Applications missing any of these items are incomplete and will not be considered.

Your completed application, your attached personal statement and accurate credit card information in EOaccess (we will reach out to non-members for payment information), must be submitted no later than Monday, 2 February 2015 by 11:59 p.m. GMT. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered, and no exceptions will be made.

The announcement of the 65 most qualified candidates - those who will matriculate at the Endicott House in 2015 - will be made via email by the end of business (9 p.m. GMT) on Friday, 27 February 2015. At that time, all applicants will be notified of their application status.

Please note, that you may create a username and password, so you can save your work and resume later.

The registration fee for the EMP Class of 2017 is US$4100 for EO members and US$4600 for non-members. All applicants are required to submit credit card information with their application for a non-refundable deposit of US$2000. If you are accepted into the program – regardless of whether or not you can attend – you will receive an acceptance letter and it is at that time that the US$2000 deposit will be charged, making the total Year 1 cost for accepted applicants US$6100 (EO member) or US$6600 (non-member). If you are NOT accepted into the program, the US$2000 deposit will not be processed.

The registration fee includes: accommodations for four (4) nights, meals, books, other course resources and shuttle bus service to/from meeting/social venues. Expenses not covered by the registration fee include, but are not limited to: air transportation, pre- and post-event ground transportation, gratuities, alcoholic beverages, in-room dining, internet (Sheraton Hotel only), food/beverages purchased at the Saturday night activity and miscellaneous personal incidentals.

*Please visit the EMP Website for the breakdown of the payment schedule and the detailed cancellation policy.

Once you receive your acceptance letter and the US$2000 has been received, you must register and pay the registration fee (US$4100 members; US$4600 non-members) for the event. This registration fee is IN ADDITION TO the required US$2000 deposit.

EO requires you to register and pay in full for the Year 1 meeting of the EMP Class of 2017 within 10 business days of receiving the acceptance letter. Payment by credit card, check or wire transfer is accepted, and must be received and approved to confirm your place in the class.

If you do not register within 10 days of being accepted or your form of payment is not approved within this time frame (i.e. your credit card is declined or wire transfer not received), your place in the class will be given to someone on the waitlist.

On average, the EMP receives about 130 applications each year. With only 65 spaces in each class, at least 50% of applicants are not accepted into the program. Because of this, a good amount of consideration is placed on your level of commitment to the program.

If you are accepted into the program, you will receive:
1. An acceptance letter containing details for the Year 1 meeting;
2. A URL taking you to the EMP registration and payment page on EOaccess. If you are a non-member, you will receive a different registration URL via email.

Although accepted attendees pay the registration fee annually (vs. 100% up front), and there is no contractual agreement, you are expected to return to the program each year, more committed than the previous year.

Questions? Check out the The Application Process or Frequently Asked Questions pages on the EMP website. If your question is still not answered, send a note to Elizabeth Wilson at ewilson@eonetwork.org or call EO Global at +1.703.519.6700 and ask for extension 121.
