Master of Business Administration:

Applicants for admission must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. Additionally, international students may be required to provide TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, Duolingo, or Michigan exam scores to demonstrate English language proficiency.
 

Admissions Procedure


BHSEU accepts applications on an ongoing basis. Complete applications received before the deadline are evaluated for the next term start date. Incomplete applications cannot be evaluated for admission. Applicants are advised to ensure that all required elements are included with their applications in order to avoid a delay in the admissions process.

Applicants must submit: 
1. A completed Application 
2. Official transcripts verifying completion of a Bachelor’s degree from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the US Department of Education, CHEA, or listed in the International Handbook for Colleges or Universities.
3. A close-up copy of an official government ID or passport; and
4. A recent photo 
5. Application fee    

Additional requirements for international students:


1. Transcripts not in English: Transcripts that are not in English must be translated into English and evaluated by an approved third party recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Service (NACES). They may also be evaluated by a trained transcript evaluator fluent in the language on the transcript. Evaluators must possess expertise in the educational practices of the country of origin and must include an English translation of the review. All translated materials must be official.
 

BHSEU’s preferred evaluating company is SpanTran, which can provide both credential evaluation and translation services.

Applicants are not required to use SpanTran, but all translation(s) and evaluation(s) submitted by an applicant must meet the policy requirements to be accepted by BHSEU.


2. International Transcript Requirements: In order to be accepted, an official transcript for a degree program completed in a country other than the U.S. must include the following information:


a.    The type of degree completed (bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree);
b.    The date when the degree was conferred;
c.    A list of all courses along with the corresponding credits (or units) and the grades earned;
d.    A legend with the grading scale and the key to read the transcript;
e.    Signature by the appropriate university official.
 
If the official transcript does not include one or more of the characteristics described above, students are required to obtain an official US degree equivalency evaluation from an organization recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). BHSEU’s preferred provider is Spantran, which provides discounted pricing for BHSEU students. However, students may use any organization recognized by NACES for degree equivalency evaluation.

3. Proof of English Language Proficiency: Passing an English language proficiency exam is required of applicants whose native language is not English. The only exception is for applicants who have earned a degree at an institution where the language of instruction is English.

For admission, non-native English-speaking applicants must score at or above the following levels in one of the following English language proficiency tests:

 

  • TOEFL Paper Based Test (PBT): minimum score of 60 required 

  • TOEFL Internet-Based Test (iBT); minimum score of 71 required

  • International English Language Test (IELTS); minimum score of 6.5 required 

  • Pearson Test of English Academic Score Report; minimum score of 50 required

Applicants who have already taken the TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, Duolingo, or Michigan exam can upload a copy of their exam results within the application.

Applicants who have not taken either the TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, Duolingo, or Michigan exam will need to take it prior to submitting an application to BHSEU. Applications cannot be reviewed without qualifying exam results.


Acceptance to the University

Applications are reviewed first by admissions staff and second by the Chief Academic Officer. If it is determined that the application meets all minimum requirements, the applicant will be accepted into BHSEU and can start classes at the next term (see Academic Calendar). 

Successful applicants will be notified via an email. Accepted students sign an enrollment agreement and submit a copy of a government issued photo ID.

Students access the enrollment agreement using the account created to complete the application process. The enrollment agreement is submitted to BHSEU electronically by the student. BHSEU accepts the enrollment agreement, verified by the signature of the CEO. The fully executed enrollment agreement is made available to the student as a PDF. 


Non-discrimination Policy


BHSEU does not discriminate against any person on the basis of age, ancestry, color, ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, race, gender or sex, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, veteran status, or on the basis of these perceived characteristics, or based on association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.

BHSEU is committed to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.

BHSEU provides accommodations based on medical or professional documentation submitted by the student. It is the student’s responsibility to self-identify to the institution prior to the start of class. Students requiring learning accommodations resulting from disability or injury should contact Student Support. Student Support will provide access to an accommodations request form in the Student Information System (SIS). The student must complete the form and provide supporting documentation. Once submitted, the request will be evaluated by the Chief Academic Officer within five (5) business days. The decision will be communicated with the student in the SIS.

 

Student Support in other Languages

While the language of instruction is English and applicants must prove English language proficiency in order to enroll, BHSEU is pleased to provide Student Support services in other languages. 

Currently, staff at BHSEU provide support to applicants and students in French via phone, WhatsApp, and email.

Providing support in other languages is intended to increase a student’s level of understanding and comfort with BHSEU student policies. 

Questions related to the content of the courses within the MBA curriculum can only be answered by the faculty member teaching the course and cannot be answered in any language other than English.

BHSEU does not provide translation services.
