International Students

International students bring a great deal of experience and world knowledge to our programs.  The Perdue School MBA program is proud to have alumni from over fifteen countries including France, Germany, China, Chile, India, Turkey and Nigeria.  International students consistently make up fifteen to twenty percent of admissions in the MBA program each year.

While international students are encouraged to apply, all applicants must complete all application requirements and be competitive with all applying to the program.  Space is limited and admission is competitive.
