Two-Year MBA International Students


International Student Orientation

Incoming international students must attend International Student Orientation (ISO) before the start of their program. ISO is designed to:

  • Acclimate you to U.S. business school
  • Help you build early connections with key faculty and staff, as well as your international peers
  • Launch your career search with a crash course on what you need to know to be successful on the job market

ISO Details for the Two-Year MBA Class of 2025

  • Date TBD

ISO Waivers

International students who have extensive U.S.-based work and/or educational experience might be eligible to waive the ISO requirement. Students who are interested in requesting a waiver should do so within our Student Information Form, which will be sent to all incoming students in the summer.
