How to Apply
The Admissions Committee will review your application when you have submitted the following materials through the central application website for the MS International Management program. The application is accessed by registering on the IPBS website. Please note that this is not the D’Amore-McKim School of Business online application. Because you are applying to both D’Amore-McKim and to a second institution, admissions representatives from both schools will need access to your application to review your candidacy.
- U.S. Bachelor's degree or equivalent
- Work experience
- Demonstrated English-language proficiency for non-native speakers.
Depending on which one of the six IPBS institutions you attend for Study Block 1, you may begin your MS in International Management in August or September. Complete the online application form by the deadline. Submit your application as soon as you have completed your part of it, whether or not your recommender has completed his or her evaluation. The online application system will automatically match recommendations submitted on your behalf with your application.
Your nonrefundable €50 application fee, to be paid electronically by PayPal is due when you submit your online application (as the last step). If you do not have a PayPal account please contact our central IPBS MIM office at email@example.com and they will provide you with bank transfer details.
Please include your name and essay question on each page of your personal statement. It should be presented in 12-point size font, double-spaced. Discuss both your short-term and long-term professional goals. Describe what challenges you may face as well as how your previous experiences will help contribute to your future success. Your answer should highlight why you have decided to pursue your MS in International Management at this point in your career and how you feel this professional credential will help you achieve success. Upload your personal statement as a PDF or Word document into your online application.
Submit a professional résumé that lists your work history, beginning with your most recent experience. Please include awards or other recognition you may have received for work, community service, or other accomplishments. Upload your résumé as a PDF or Word document in your online application.
Two Letters of Recommendation
Download the recommendation form—one academic (provided by a business professor/lecturer) and one professional. We suggest that you obtain recommendations from individuals (such as current or recent managers) who have directly supervised your work and can assess your ability and potential to succeed in a rigorous business school program and achieve career success.
Applicants without work experience: Both of your recommendations may be from your professors.
Upload scanned copies of your academic transcripts from each degree-granting postsecondary institution (undergraduate and graduate) attended. Please do not submit academic records from your secondary school or high school.
We follow an online application review process so please do not send your paper transcriptions or certified evaluations to our office unless you receive a request from us to do so. The Admissions Committee will review your scanned transcriptions, which are considered unofficial at this stage of the application process.
If you were a transfer, study-abroad, or exchange student, you must include scanned copies of transcripts from all institutions attended, even if some of your courses appear on multiple transcripts. If you are a current student, please include a list of your current classes even if you have not received your final grades.
Please read and sign the Applicant’s Agreement attesting to the authenticity and truthfulness of your work before submitting your online application.
The program starts in September. Our application dates are as follows. We will review all applications received after the final deadline on a rolling basis so it is advantageous to apply as early as possible.
