  1. Hi,
    this was realy helpful.
    wel cud you plz tel me if a 3yrs undergrad can apply to these US inst. if not thn cud you ans if it even exists and if yes plz giv a link.
    with regards,

    • Hi Pradeep,

      If you are looking at MBA for further studies, usually institutes look at a minimum of 16yrs education (or 4yr undergrad degree) Correspondence courses are not accepted to qualify and all the courses have to be done in accredited institutes.

      For students who have only 15yrs education (3yr degree), there are a few alternatives.

      1. MBA Bridge program/Pre-MBA for students with 15yrs education
      2. If you have 2-4yrs minimum work experience, the university could consider it equal to a 4th yr of undergrad studies thus making you eligible. You’ll have to check with the university or it will be mentioned on their websites
      3. You could do a 1yr/2yr Masters course to qualify. Remember it has to be from a UGC-AICTE accredited institution rated ‘A’ or better by NAAC.

      All the Best!

      P.S. Pre-MBA programs also refer to few weeks long programs for GMAT/TOEFL preparation or even programs for already qualified students who just want to experience what classes will be like before actually starting graduate courses. So make sure you search for a year long or 8-9months long MBA Bridge Program.

    Questions?

    Are the fees quoted for public universities, per semester?

    And if so how many semesters are there for the academic year?

    Looking forward to your reply.
