Application FAQ

From Acton MBA - UFM

Successful entrepreneurs know how to ask the right questions.

Is Acton right for me?

That’s really a question that only you can answer. Here are some signs that it might be:

  • Do you feel driven to succeed?
  • Have you started businesses before?
  • Do you hate the idea of working for someone else?
  • Do the idea of having a boss turn your stomach?
  • Do you have a burning desire to change the world?
  • Do you ever feel like a misfit?
  • Do you have something to prove to the world?
  • Are you frustrated with the status quo?


If these questions resonate with you, there’s a good chance Acton is the place for you. Explore our website, come for a class visit, and submit an application—you won’t know unless you push yourself.


Can I visit a class before applying?

To fully understand the power of the Acton program, you must see the class in action. The energy of a Socratic discussion needs to be seen to be believed. Click here to request a class visit.


When are admissions applications due?

All applications must be completed and received the day of the application deadline. See the Application Deadline page for more details. Completed applications must include application fees, CV, and all two letters of recommendation in order to be considered.


What are the benefits to applying for earlier admissions deadlines?

Acton has a very limited class size, so we encourage potential students who are very serious and excited about attending the program to apply as early as possible to ensure they have the best chances of acceptance. We do not reserve a certain number of acceptances per admissions deadline, so there is a chance that there will be only a few seats left by the final admissions deadline.


Is there a fee for applying?

A nonrefundable application fee of (U.S.) $50 can be paid at the student’s services offices at Universidad Francisco Marroquín or by credit card through the online application system.


Do I need letters of recommendations for my application?

Your Acton application includes two recommendations from people who can speak about you in a professional setting.
