US MBA Programs accepting 3 years bachelor's or 15 years of education from India


US education system requires students to complete four years of undergraduate education to obtain a degree. Thus, most business schools in the US require international students to to complete a minimum of 16 years (10+2+4) of education before they apply for programs like MBA. In countries like India, apart from courses such as medicine and engineering; most undergraduate courses need three years for completion.

While some schools would accept 15 years of education, some would ask you to increase your competitiveness by obtaining a Master's degree before applying; some would mention that a post graduate diploma in the same area of study as your Bachelor's degree can qualify you for the program and some would consider you eligible if you are a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and hold a 3-year Bachelor's degree.

In our experience, many successful applicants who have done well in their career, have a good extracurricular records and convey their case convincingly can get through almost all schools. Since the schools evaluate the applications in totality, we would encourage you to write the admissions committee of your choicest school and check the eligibility and frame application in accordance to those preferences.
