International Students


The MS-MBA’s renowned reputation attracts students from around the world. When you enroll at Purdue and Indiana universities, you’ll earn degrees respected globally.

In addition to the application criteria outlined in the Guide to Applying, international applications have some additional requirements for admission.

International applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) or Duolingo English Test scores for admission. For minimum score requirements and a list of official English-speaking countries in addition to the U.S., visit the  English Proficiency Requirements webpage. 

Supplemental materials needed for an application to be considered complete vary from country to country. Review your current/previous academic institution’s country for a listing of required admission documents.


Graduate School English Language Criteria

The Graduate School Admissions office recently updated the How to Apply webpage to include more details about English proficiency waivers for applicants who have received a degree from a school where English is the primary language of instruction in a recognized English speaking country.

Submitting Transcripts

An official transcript bears the original signature of the registrar and/or the original seal of the issuing institution. The applicant must also provide two original copies of a list of courses and their grades, if they are not included with an official transcript. 

Two copies of transcripts and courses and their English translations should be mailed directly by a registrar to:
