    • Master of Business Administration at Harvard University is offered as a 2-year teaching program offering a co-op work option. In order to be eligible to participate in a full-time Co-op Work Term, students must meet the GPA requirements. 
    • International applicants looking for getting into MBA at Harvard need to have a four-year bachelor’s degree, GMAT scores (or GRE equivalents), ELP scores (TOEFL iBT- 109), and an amount of around 54 lakhs INR/year to finance their studies. However, for those of you looking for scholarships, Harvard offers a need-based scholarship of around 45,000 USD a year to its MBA students. 
    • The Program is a deferred admission process for current students, either in college or full-time master's programs. It is comprised of at least two years of professional work experience followed by two years in the Harvard Business School MBA Program.
    • Upon graduation, admitted 2+2 students spend a minimum of two years (maximum of four years) working in a professional position in the public, private, or nonprofit sector. They encourage students from STEM and humanities disciplines to apply, but the 2+2 Program attracts accomplished students from all fields of study.

    Outlines for the US Student Visa application process:

    • When a new international student comes to Harvard University from outside the United States using a visa sponsored by Harvard University. All student visas sponsored by Harvard University require both a visa document issued by the Harvard International Office and a visa from a U.S. embassy or consulate outside the United States. 
    • Canadian citizens only need a visa document and do not need a visa from a U.S. embassy or consulate.
    • Students can apply for different types of visas such as J-Scholar Visa, H-1B Visa, O-1 Visa, TN Visa, E-3 Visa, B Visa & ESTA.

    Work Study

    The primary benefit for students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study Program is that their federally-subsidized wages can allow them to pursue a wider range of employment opportunities to fulfill their term-time work expectations, particularly with employers who wouldn't otherwise be able to hire a student worker. Here are some examples of employers for which Federal Work-Study Program-eligible students can work with: 

    • On-Campus Jobs: Students can use Federal Work-Study Program funds for any on-campus position.
    • Off-Campus Jobs: The following off-campus employers qualify for the Federal Work-Study Program: 
      • Recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organizations (i.e. shelters, hospitals, youth organizations, etc.)
      • State, local, and federal government agencies
      • For-profit organizations whose business activity is related to the student's concentration
      • Positions at religious organizations that do not involve constructing, operating, or maintaining any part of a building used for religious worship or sectarian instruction. For example, students can work at a church that is operating a homeless shelter but can not assist a religious leader in making a space ready for religious service.

    10.0 /10

    To find the perfect business school in the united states for my further MBA studies, a lot of research work was done by me. So further to initiate the admission process at Harvard business school an application fee of $100 was paid by me which was non-refundable. Also through the admission process, my GPA score of 9 helped me a lot.

    The School is a part of the Harvard University which comes in the Top 3 University in the world so no one who gets a chance to study here will never let it go. I casually filled the application form but never thought that it will be accepted. The application costs $250 through the college website.

    Harvard university has been on top of my list on where I'd pursue my MBA since I loved everything about the college. Right from the campus, to professors, to placements, academics, etc. After working for a few years, I decided to apply for an MBA here and paid an online application fee of $250.
