International Applicants

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 MBA.

Curriculum for the two-year track in the Part-Time MBA

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 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 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.

We offer our international students special support through the Office of Global Services on campus. They will help you navigate the complexities of U.S. government regulations and procedures once you are enrolled, and help you build connections and share your values and stories both across the university and throughout Boston.

English Language Requirement

We welcome students from around the globe. Our program is built upon a learning experience that encourages group discussions and active class participation. To succeed, you will need proficiency in written and oral English. If you are not a native English speaker, you must take a standardized test of English language proficiency unless you completed a Bachelor’s degree or a Master’s degree at an accredited institution where English is the language of instruction. Exam scores are valid for two years. Please enter your test scores and upload a scanned copy of your results as a document in your online application.

We accept the following English language proficiency test scores:
