An international applicant is anyone who is not a US citizen or US permanent resident at the time of application to Chicago Booth. Evening MBA and Weekend MBA students are not eligible for student visas. Admission to Chicago Booth does not guarantee non-immigrant status in the United States. Please see your nearest US Embassy if you have questions about your status.
- Academic Record - All international applicants are required to hold a college or university degree equivalent to a four-year American baccalaureate degree. In light of the Bologna Accord, Chicago Booth will also accept all three-year international degrees to fulfill the undergraduate prerequisite for application to the Chicago Booth School of Business. You will be asked to either submit official academic records or provide a notarized transcript.
- English Language Examinations - For those whose native language is not English, Chicago Booth requires the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the Academic version of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
