To gain entrance into this prestigious MBA program international students have the option to apply to a Pre-Masters program (PMP). The PMP is a one or two semester program designed for students who have completed a bachelors degree but need additional support to gain entry to the UMass Lowell masters program. The PMP program helps to close the gap in your academic skills and offers courses to fully prepare you to be successful in the MBA program in the United States, while also gaining credit towards your degree in the process.
When you are accepted into the PMP, you are also conditionally accepted into the masters program, as long as you successfully complete the PMP coursework and attain a GPA of 3.0 in both your PMP and graduate courses and have a GMAT score of a 500. You do not need to make any other application and you will only need one student visa application.
