International Business Bridge

Does your application package need a boost before you apply to a U.S. business school?

Fordham created the International Business Bridge program (IBB) to help international students get ready for a graduate-level U.S. business degree program.

In just two semesters, the Fordham IBB will help you:

  • Improve your English skills
  • Build a foundation in business theory and practice
  • Prepare for graduate-level business coursework

This program is an excellent precursor to a graduate business degree at Fordham or at another highly regarded U.S. university in which your GMAT score will be required.

IBB Admissions

The IBB is for international students who hold the equivalent of a four-year bachelor’s degree. In certain cases, it replaces the final year of university; please check with your school and with Fordham to make this determination.

To apply, candidates must submit a completed online application.
