International Accelerator

Introduction

International Accelerator

International Accelerator is designed to help international students and non-native English speakers thrive in some of America’s greatest research universities. In addition to ensuring students succeed academically, IA programs help them navigate their new lives in America with English classes, immersive cultural experiences, logistical support (airport pickup, accommodations), and mentors.

Universities served by International Accelerator are fully accredited, nationally ranked, and global leaders in their fields of study.

International Accelerator features:

  • Top-ranked, globally leading universities
  • Personalized student experience focused on onboarding, integration, and academic success
  • Emphasis on global citizenship
  • Commitment to student success
IA partner universities have at their heart a curriculum that is both challenging and engaging, driven by the goal of creating a world-class, meaningful student experience.

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.

Career Accelerator

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
