Rejected candidates

Denied admission to the YTP doesn't have any kind of effect, negative or positive, in future applications to IESE Business School. The Young Talent Program is one way of accessing the MBA, but not the only one. Thus, YTP rejected students are welcome to apply to the MBA later on, as professionals with 3-6 years of work experience.
