Director of MBA Admissions
The Full-Time and Evening MBA Programs at Boston College are distinguished by their unique combination of classroom and applied learning. Students receive a thorough education in managerial concepts, which are complemented by abundant opportunities to utilize their management skills in actual business settings during the program.
The first year of the full-time program revolves around a semester-long consulting project with a business client. Case-studies, new venture planning exercises and global study courses provide additional means for gaining first-hand management experience. These opportunities prepare Boston College MBAs to immediately contribute to an organizationŐs strategic objectives.
Global management issues and the role of technology in business are an integral part of the program. Supplementing core study, the innovative Management Practice sequence provides training in the critical skills and issues in contemporary management, including communication, team building and cross-functionality.
The University Boston College is a coeducational, two-campus university with four undergraduate schools and six graduate and professional schools. The University offers 14 degree programs and two certificate programs and enrolls 8,900 undergraduates and 4,600 graduate students.
Established in 1863, Boston College is the largest Jesuit-affiliated university in the country. Committed to academic excellence and service to others, the University serves a diverse body of scholars from across the United States and more than 90 foreign countries.
The University is located in Boston, New England's largest city and an international center of business and finance.
Graduate Assistantships and Scholarships
The Carroll School of Management offers a significant program of graduate assistantships and scholarships to full-time MBA and MSF classes. Assistantships and scholarships are merit-based awards. Awardees usually have two or more years of full-time work experience, 630 or above on the GMAT, 3.2 or above grade point average and a strong set of application materials.
NOTE: Interested applicants must submit with their application a current resume and a cover letter describing their skills and areas of interest. These materials must be submitted to the MBA program by March 1, 1999 for September admission. Graduate assistantships involve research or administrative duties in exchange for tuition remission.
Students are generally appointed to 8-,12-, or 16-hour per week assistantships. There are a limited number of assistantships available to both domestic and international applicants.
Eight-hour and twelve-hour per week assistantship awards are equal to 12 and 18 credit hours of tuition assistance per academic year, respectively. A sixteen-hour assistantship award is equal to 31 credit hours of tuition for first-year MBA students and 24 credit hours of tuition for second-year MBA students. A portion of assistantship awards is subject to tax. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and vary in amount. Decisions regarding assistantships and scholarships are made in April and May.
Students who receive a scholarship or assistantship during the first year of the MBA program and maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0 are eligible for consideration for continuing support during the second year, subject to performance evaluation by their supervisor.
University-Administered Financial Aid
In addition to the assistantships and scholarships offered through the Carroll School of Management, the University Financial Aid Office offers a variety of programs to help students finance their education. Students should be aware that most loan programs charge an origination fee and should factor this into their financial planning.
There are many alternative loans available to international applicants. Any student may apply for these loans which are not federally subsidized. All require a credit check and most allow the student to defer interest and principal until after graduation (the interest is capitalized and added to the principal). International students must have a US citizen as a co-signer. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for applications and information about alternative loans.
