An international applicant is anyone who is not a US citizen or US permanent resident at the time of application to Chicago Booth. 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 self-reported 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).
