How Do I Apply?

Submit your information and attachments using the online application by June 1.

  • A one- to two-page essay stating why you meet the qualifications and are interested in the Global Business Academy

International Students (Non-U.S. Citizens or Non-U.S. Permanent Residents)

Travel documentation requirements: Apply for your B-1/B-2 or visitor visa early as it can be a time-consuming and lengthy process. Contact a representative from your local embassy to determine the proper documentation and steps. Please note, this program does not qualify students for a student visa.

Minimum language requirement: All classes and activities will be conducted in English. We are unable to provide ESL (English as a Second Language) support. For students whose first language is not English and have taken the TOEFL exam, the minimum required scores are 80 for the Internet-based TOEFL and 6.5 for the IELTS test.

For International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), or Cambridge International Exams (CIE) students, TOEFL exam requirements can be waived.

If none of the above applies, please complete the Demonstration of English Proficiency (Word) and upload it with your application.
