A Global Community The D'Amore-McKim School of Business community is as global as our Boston location. We admit international students with a demonstrated record of academic and professional achievement who show great potential for further success in the two-year track in the Part-Time MS in Finance/MBA.
Curriculum Map for International Students
U.S. federal regulations require international students to maintain lawful (F-1/J-1) student status. In order to be admitted into the Part-Time MS in Finance/MBA program, students with F1 and J1 visas must maintain full-time enrollment each term/semester (except during designated vacation periods) and demonstrate normal progress toward the completion of your degree or program of study. Full-time graduate enrollment consists of 9 credits per term.
While the Part-Time MS in Finance/MBA curriculum includes online course options, students with F1 and J1 visas must take at least 5 of the 9 required credits per term on campus. In other words, no more than 3 credits, or one online course per term, as part of their full-time enrollment. Once that full-time on-campus level is met, more online courses can be taken.
