For international students, the move from your home country to a postgraduate degree in the United States can be challenging — a new language, new ways of learning, and a new home. International Accelerator programs ease this transition by combining credit-bearing courses with additional academic support, instruction and cultural experiences. The program offers a learning-centered environment that promotes academic success, active involvement in campus life and community engagement.
The program that’s right for you will depend on your academic background, level of English-language proficiency and personal preferences; however, all International Accelerator programs offer the following:
Dedicated Support - As a MAP student, you benefit from round-the-clock support for help with all matters, large or small.
Small Class Sizes - You’re given greater individual attention and tailored support with our small class sizes.
Professional Success - Prepare for academic and professional success with tailored professional development courses for international students.
Streamlined Admissions Process - Enjoy a simple, fast admissions process. No references, résumés, essays or SAT/ACT/GRE/GMAT scores are required.
Preparation for the global workplace Through the Career Accelerator, you will develop your professional skills and gain a strong understanding of how your knowledge, interests, motivations and personal experiences give you an immediate advantage when it comes to launching your career.
Designed exclusively for international undergraduate students, the Career Accelerator features unique workshops, real-world experiences, cross-cultural group work and skills-based training. Once you have progressed beyond the Undergraduate Accelerator, you will continue to work with your advisor on your individual career plan. Employers want confident team members who are job-ready. The Career Accelerator offers five different tracks:
College-to-career for students pursuing an internship (or co-op) experience during their college years and/or seeking general preparation for their post-graduate job search
Advanced degree preparation for students who intend to directly pursue a master’s or doctorate degree, including students in premed, prelaw or similar professional fields
Sponsored business development for students participating in a corporate scholarship program with activities customized to the sponsoring company and/or industry
Family business development for students pursuing a degree to assist with the strengthening and expansion of a family-owned business
Entrepreneurship for students intending to start, own, run and manage their own business after graduation
IA universities recognize the achievements of international students and help them pursue their studies at a top U.S. university.
