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. 
 

Transfer of Credit

Transfer into The Business, Humanities, Science and Ethics University

The acceptance of transfer credits between institutions lies within the discretion of the receiving institution. Credits earned at other institutions may or may not be accepted. Likewise, credits earned may or may not be accepted by another institution depending upon its programs, policies, and regulations. 

 

Transfer credits will be evaluated using the following guidelines:

 

  • Only credits earned at an institution that is accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Secretary of Education and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), or an accepted foreign equivalent that is listed in the International Handbook of Universities will be considered. Any credits earned at a foreign institution must have a credential evaluation completed indicating equivalency with courses.

 

  • An official transcript of the student’s coursework must be furnished directly by the institution where the coursework was completed before any application for transfer credits can be evaluated.

 

  • A copy of the catalog or course syllabi from the institution at which the coursework was completed, at the time that the coursework was completed, must be furnished before any application for transfer credits can be evaluated.

 

  • A minimum grade of “B” or “3.0” must have been awarded for each course completed to be eligible for transfer. Only courses in which grades were assigned will be considered. Credits earned as a result of a “pass/fail” option are not eligible for transfer.

 

  • Coursework completed more than three years ago is not eligible for transfer of credit.

 

  • Transfer of credit must be completed prior to enrollment. Submitting an official transcript in a timely manner is the sole responsibility of the student.

 

  • The Chief Academic Officer shall make final determination on the acceptability of transfer credits. The above guidelines shall be used in evaluating all applications for transfer of credit; however, the institution reserves the right to accept or reject any or all transfer credits at its discretion.

 

Up to 50% of the program can be completed via transfer of credit. Therefore, the maximum number of credits that can be transferred into the Master of Business Administration is eighteen (18) credits or the equivalent of six (6) three-semester credit hour courses.  

 

Students wishing to receive credit for courses taken at other institutions will need to provide all required documents as part of the application process.

 

Transfer out 

Transferability of credits earned is always up to the discretion of the receiving institution. We do not in any way imply or guarantee the transferability of credit into any other college or university.

 

Credit for Life Experience

We do not offer credit for life experience.

Technology Requirements

Electronic communication is the preferred medium for students, faculty and staff. To take advantage of this technology, it is required that students, faculty and staff acquire and maintain e-mail access with the capability to send and receive attached files.

 

In order to navigate the Internet, it is recommended that the latest version of one of the following browsers be used:

 

  • Mozilla Firefox

The Business, Humanities, Science and Ethics University also provides documents that can be accessed using Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available without cost to students at www.adobe.com

 

We strive to prevent the spread of computer viruses by employing the latest virus detection software on all university-owned computer systems; however, We makes no guarantee related to the unintentional propagation of computer viruses that may go undetected by our virus detection software.

 

The Business, Humanities, Science and Ethics University will not be held liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages of any kind, including but not limited to: loss of data, file corruption, or hardware failure, resulting from the effect of any malicious code or computer virus unintentionally transmitted by university staff members, faculty, students or affiliates.

 

The Business, Humanities, Science and Ethics University strongly recommends and urges all faculty and students to seek out and install adequate virus detection software and to routinely check for, and install, the most recent updates to their anti-virus software no less frequently than once each month for their computer and operating system.

 

Technical Specifications and Instructions

In general, students access course materials using a computer or laptop (PC or Mac), a modern web browser, and a high-speed Internet connection.

 

We do not support the use of tablets, smartphones or other similar devices for taking any of the courses in the program. While some course material might be accessible on those devices, students are likely to encounter technical issues that may prevent them from successfully completing courses.

 

Specific courses may have additional technology requirements as specified in individual course syllabi.
