The MBA Foundation  is designed for undergraduate students (or those with a bachelor’s degree) seeking to pursue a graduate degree program in business at an American university.  The program is designed to challenge students interested in graduate business studies with advanced English language through our exclusive Academic English – Graduate program and to improve core academic competencies through enrollment in the MBA Foundation program coursework.

Program Advantages

Students completing the MBA Foundation will enjoy the following benefits:

Academic and Professional Readiness:  Our advanced level Academic English Program, taught by native speakers, focuses on students’ ability to produce  top-quality English language communications.  This is of primary importance not only to graduate business schools, but also to success in the professional business community in which the student will ultimately work.  

Networking Opportunities:  Students engage and interact with notable American university faculty in the MBA Foundation. This presents the best opportunity an international student can have for demonstrating the initiative, drive, and skills that graduate schools look for in their applicants.  Strong professional relationships and recommendations often develop from such a focused academic engagement.

Stronger Course Fundamentals:  Colleges report that international business students are often ill-prepared in the fundamental coursework required in American business programs.  MBA Foundation establishes or refocuses attention on these core subjects with courses offered, taught, and administered by some of the top universities in America.  MBA Foundation brings top level U.S. college coursework directly to program participants! 

Course credit/Waiver:  MBA Foundation  college course offerings offer opportunities for credit transfer and/or waiver of requirements that make the MBA Foundation program a valuable investment in a student’s academic future.
