Chicago Booth STEM MBA

昨年からアメリカを中心とするビジネススクールでは、S(科学)T(技術)E(工学)M(数学)分野の教育カリキュラムを強化する動きが目立ちます。そして今回はChicago Booth Schoolにおいて、STEM MBA Certificateの準備が整ったとの発表がありました。また、F-1(学生)ビザ保持者は、MBA取得後に実務経験を通じた24ヵ月間のOptional Practical Trainingを申請できます。

こうしたSTEM Certificate Programの動きは、留学生に対して多くのメリットを提供すると考えられています。まずは多様性に富んだコミュニティができることにより、教員やクラスメートがそれぞれのユニークな視点を共有する機会を得ます。こうした機会の積み重ねが、既存の教育内容をより活性化させると予想されています。

コロナウィルス拡大の影響とMBA Admissions Information② (締め切り日の延期、テスト受験等)

〇 Northwestern University (Kellogg School)
https://blogs.kellogg.northwestern.edu/inside/2020/03/31/round-3-application-extension-mba/

Round 3 application extension: the details
The current deadline for Round 3 applications to our Full-Time MBA Programs will still stand on April 8. If you can meet that deadline, you’ll be among the first we review for admission and scholarship decisions, which will be released on May 13.

However, after the April 8 deadline, we are moving to rolling admissions for Round 3 through June 1. Due to the current pandemic, some of you have encountered barriers to meeting the original deadline. We’re also aware that many of your personal and professional situations may have changed, making business school a priority for next year.

Though we will keep accepting applications through June 1, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible, especially for 1Y, MMM and international applicants. Rolling decisions will apply to both admission and scholarship awards. Additionally, the sooner you receive your decision the sooner you can start planning for next year!

Online GMAT/GRE scores accepted

For the first time ever, the GMAT and GRE are now available to be taken online. We’re very pleased to see that the testing organizations have taken this step to put safety first. Kellogg will accept scores submitted through this new virtual testing model.

If you are unable to take the GMAT/GRE or TOEFL, you can still apply. We will wait to render your final admissions decision until we receive your score. If you are unable to submit a test score in time for receiving a decision this year, we will roll your application components forward to next year so that you don’t have to re-submit entirely. If you are planning to submit without a score, you need to contact us via MBAadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu or 847.491.3308 so we can help you submit it manually. You will not be able to do it yourself.
