“ Today, success in business is as much about understanding cultures and globalization as it is about understanding finance and marketing. With our exceptional faculty, rigorous curriculum, and unique campus network, Hult International Business School is committed to educating not just leaders of business, but leaders of the world.” Bertil Hult Chairman Emeritus of Hult International Business School. Founder of EF Education First—the world’s largest private education organization—and educational philanthropist.
Our History Our legacy in training global business leaders since 1964 shapes our future as the world’s most international business school. A practical business education
The world’s 7th largest MBA program
In 1964, the school was established as America’s first corporate university, then known as the Arthur D. Little School of Management (ADL). ADL focused on delivering a practical business education for managers. The teaching pedagogy was different from other business schools’ because it emphasized “action learning”— applying classroom theory in the real world. This methodology was honed over 40 years and is central to Hult’s pioneering approach to practical business education today.
Hult’s compelling vision of a practical and global business education has attracted many students from around the world. Today, the school has grown to become the world’s 7th largest MBA program, with nearly 800 students across both full-time and part-time programs. Our growth demonstrates the tremendous demand for an innovative and practical business education. The world’s largest MBA programs 1

The world’s most international business school In 2003, one of Europe’s most successful entrepreneurs, Bertil Hult, financially supported the school to expand its teaching methodology to not only train effective managers, but also prepare them to thrive on a global stage. Bertil Hult strongly believed students must experience cultural differences and global business practices firsthand, growing the school from its single Boston location to a global network of campuses including London, Dubai, Shanghai, and San Francisco under the name Hult International Business School.

Why Hult? Why students choose the world’s most international business school: Global Campus Rotation
Hult offers students a unique opportunity to see the world while they study. As an MBA student, you can start anywhere and go anywhere. On Global Campus Rotation, you can pick your home campus and then spend up to three months studying at two others. Students could begin in Boston, then travel to Shanghai via London or San Francisco via Dubai. You’ll get an inside look at the world’s fastest growing economies and examine international business practices close-up. Almost 90% of our students choose Hult because they are interested in this option, and over half of our students spend time in more than one campus.
Hult continues its rapid ascent in business school ratings, currently ranking in the top 1% of business schools. Hult is ranked #1 for International Experience and #5 for International Business by the Financial Times, as well as #17 for best business school in the U.S. and #27 in the world by The Economist.
Hands-on business experience Unlike other business schools that are research-oriented, 80% of Hult’s faculty have real-world experience. Many have worked for companies like P&G, Motorola, and Credit Suisse, while others have run their own businesses or created their own patents. Hult empowers students to develop their own real-world skills by completing a six-week Action Project consulting for a Fortune 500 company like Levi’s, Philips, Xerox, or IBM. This reinforces our mission to prepare job-ready graduates who can deliver results from day one.
A U.S.accredited degree American-style graduate programs have long been the premier standard in business education. Hult International Business School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and Association of MBAs (AMBA). That means that no matter where you decide to pursue your MBA, you will graduate with a U.S.-accredited degree.
Fastest return on investment
Our 12-month intensive program results in the fastest return on investment compared to higher priced two-year MBA programs. Equipping yourself with a Hult degree in 12 months results in lower cost, less time away from work, and quicker re-entry—with an MBA salary. Hult currently ranks #1 in post-graduation salary increase by The Economist and our students, on average, are able to recoup their investment in a little over a year.*
Hult is on the cutting edge of business education in several key areas: emerging markets, digital marketing, social entrepreneurship, and crowdsourcing. The school launched the first dedicated Master degree covering digital marketing, search engine technology, and the impact of social media. The school also organizes the world’s largest business school competition—the Hult Global Case Challenge—that crowdsources ideas from students all over the world to help a leading non-profit organization tackle a major social challenge.

Hult offers you the extraordinary opportunity to live and study in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, and Shanghai. Immerse yourself in the world’s most influential cities Hult’s Global Campus Rotation gives you the chance to study at up to three of our five campuses.

Once you start your MBA on your home campus, you can decide where to take elective courses. Choose to stay on your home campus for the full year or spend up to 12 weeks on one or two other campuses. Imagine starting your MBA program in London and then spending time in Shanghai before graduating in Boston. It’s a truly lifechanging experience that only Hult can deliver.
Seamless experience, from Hult to Hult
A closer look at international business
Our Global Campus Rotation is fully integrated into our MBA curriculum. In contrast to most business schools that offer their students study abroad opportunities through exchange programs with other schools, Hult prides itself on being the full provider of the Global Campus Rotation.
By learning international business in a global setting, you’ll be able to put complex issues into context and gain new market insights. Study finance on our Dubai campus and compare your ideas to what regional thought leaders will do. Discuss a case study about the manufacturing industry in China and then go on a tour of the world’s largest textile factory. Nothing can replace the experience of getting an on-theground understanding of what is happening in different parts of the world—international business cannot just be taught in a classroom.
No matter which Hult campus you are on, you will use the same electronic library, the same Course Management System, and will be familiar with the way our Career Services and Student Services work. You’ll mingle with classmates from other campuses during your Global Campus Rotation and build valuable contacts as you study alongside new faces and learn from different faculty on our campuses. Our global network ensures that your MBA experience is uninterrupted and hassle-free.

San Francisco’s Bay Area is the epicenter of the world’s hightech industry.

An Intense One-Year MBA 26
â€œ Hult was an experience of a lifetime. I learned the importance of teamwork and gained the tools that I need to run a profitable business. I highly recommend Hult to anyone who is looking for a strong business education among experienced managers and exceptional faculty.â€? Andre Carvalho Business Development Manager, Bunge Brazil, Class of 2009
Our hands-on approach to learning helps you become job-ready from day one.
Our LEAP Method Employers want MBAs who are job-ready. We’ve designed our curriculum so that you don’t just study abstract theory—you also get hands-on experience. Our innovative curriculum is based on three components, “Learn, Experience, Action Project”: LEAP.
3. Action Project
Hult’s LEAP method is an integrated approach to learning that enables you to put classroom theory into practice.
Experience is a critical component of our LEAP method. Your year will include panel discussions with industry experts, company visits, and exclusive networking opportunities. These features will give you an opportunity to relate theory to practice.
Participate in a real-world project for a major company. Advised by a mentor (typically an experienced management consultant), small teams of students compete with one another to develop a business strategy for a Fortune 500 company.
Start your MBA by learning theory and business fundamentals in the classroom. Like most top business schools, Hult faculty employ the case study method to illustrate how business principles are applied in practice. Professors encourage thought-provoking class discussion to facilitate the exchange of ideas and the sharing of experiences. Hult provides you with the theory, tools, terminology, and trends to give you a broad perspective on business. However, unlike other top business schools, Hult goes beyond the theoretical to the practical.
Meaningful dialogue with prominent business leaders will offer valuable insights into how executives make decisions in a fast-moving, competitive environment with imperfect information. Past classroom speakers include a senior executive of the Real Madrid Football Club, who explained the economics of running one of the world’s largest sports franchises; the co-founder of Apple Computer, who discussed how to maintain innovation in a changing business environment; and the head of a major Silicon Valley venture capital firm, who advised students on how to evaluate potential venture capital opportunities.
No other business school offers such access to key decision-makers of the world’s leading companies. Over a period of six weeks, each team will consult with company managers to make a business case for the development of a novel idea. Each team will present its recommendations to a senior company leader (typically a C-level executive or board member). Hult’s Action Projects are designed to emphasize innovation and growth. Though the scope of Action Projects varies, most projects focus on the paramount challenge facing a company: identifying new pathways for growth.
Be prepared for an intense year.

Teamwork and collaboration are key ingredients to your success.
Action Projects Applying classroom learning to a real business— your Action Project—gives you a powerful platform from which to develop strategic thinking about innovation and growth. How your Action Project works We place you in small teams and assign each team to a leading business or company to help solve a real business problem. Each team is led by a faculty advisor. At each of Hult’s international campuses, we have created partnerships with Fortune 500 companies and leading business executives. Within each of these companies, five student teams work intimately with a high-level executive in charge of the company’s growth and development. Student teams are further motivated to work at high standards by competing with each other. Over six weeks, these teams meet with the company executive(s) four times while facing the task of coming up with a full-fledged plan for growth. Simultaneously, they are aided through the process by one of Hult’s world-class consulting coaches. At the end, they present their proposal to an executive team of the corporation. During this distinctive project, each team will develop insights about the particular industry and business, identify breakthrough ideas, develop a business concept, and build an implementation plan to present to senior executives and CEOs.
Innovation and Growth Recognizing that innovation is key to sustaining competitive advantage and driving growth, Hult has launched projects based on the theme of “Innovation and Growth.” This program targets the most important and difficult problem facing every company: identifying new pathways for growth. Students work toward solving this problem by drawing on a curriculum that emphasizes both theory and practice. Students can take advantage of some of the distinct strengths of Hult: our global presence, a widely diverse student body, and world-class leaders in the field of innovation.
Participating Companies (2008 to 2011)
Gain board-level exposure Presenting to the senior management of a Fortune 500 company is an exciting conclusion to a life-changing year. The project gives students the opportunity to develop solutions to the pressing challenges of leading multinational organizations. Companies benefit from the ability to crowdsource new ideas and insights from diverse international teams with students from over 120 countries.
“ My Action Project was a phenomenal learning experience.” Action Projects are a cornerstone of our innovative curriculum, which help you get jobready from day one. Every year, each Hult campus offers distinct projects for major companies.
Making up the future
Fashioning the future
Boston campus: Online buying in cosmetics
San Francisco campus: Social media in retail
Cosmetics companies are furiously trying to find the answer to a billion-dollar puzzle: how much of their market can they move online, in a sector where customers like to try before they buy? Hult Boston students examined how to make online cosmetics feasible and fun, presenting their findings to the Director of Innovation and Research and Development at a major Brazilian cosmetics company.
Social media is a key tool in the marketing of the future, as consumers spend increasing amounts of their time on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. A leading U.S. clothing and fashion brand gave Hult San Francisco students the challenge of thinking beyond existing social media to the next generation of virtual pathways essential to marketing its products. Students were asked to focus specifically on exciting growth opportunities in emerging markets. They reported their findings to the Head of Global Marketing.
Flexible thinking in a mobile market Boston campus: New markets for a Fortune 500
Scan this barcode with your mobile phone to learn more about Action Projects.
A Fortune 500 company sells printers, photocopiers, and digital printing presses, and it wants to maximize business opportunities in the rapidly growing niche of printing from mobile devices. But this is a tough market to understand—competitors have to draw up business plans in a sector where new technology and new competitors are rapidly appearing. Hult Boston students identified business opportunities in mobile printing, putting the case forward to the Chief Technology Officer. To do so, they had to reject short-term trends and threats in order to look at the longer-term future of the mobile sector.
Creativity in credit cards Dubai campus: Payment methods Wanted—clever, dedicated, and imaginative young people to explore futuristic and innovative ideas that go beyond conventional credit cards. Students at Hult Dubai were tasked by a Middle Eastern banking giant with looking into how consumers are going to pay for goods and services in the future. They had to think up solutions that met a challenging double set of criteria: convenient and attractive to customers and commercially deliverable for Hult’s financial services client. Hult Action Project teams proposed their solutions to the Head of Leadership and Management Development.
Mobile payments for mobile customers London campus: Business travel A global travel company specializing in business clients wants to know about the future of mobile payments—a fast and convenient method for this ultra busy client segment. Hult London students assessed the technology, developed an understanding of customer needs, and presented their workable and long-term business plan to the Innovation Manager for Corporate Strategy.
Doubling digital revenue London campus: News media One of the world’s leading international business newspapers wants to double its digital revenue to remain profitable in the 21st century. Across the news media and a range of other industries, the future is digital—but it is extremely hard to monetize digital content. Hult London students analyzed the newspaper’s opportunities in this medium and presented their findings to its senior executive team.
Logical logistics Shanghai campus: Logistics in online B2B Small businesses are increasingly keen to use online services to purchase vital equipment—they can choose from an amazingly wide range of products, and can buy cheaply and efficiently. But how can the intermediaries that operate the purchasing platforms keep the transaction costs as low as possible— and make delivery as rapid as possible at the same time? Hult Shanghai Action Project teams looked at the future of logistics, working with the world’s largest online B2B trading platform for small businesses. They reported to the Director of Payments and Logistics for SmallOrder Global Trading at one of China’s most robust e-commerce websites.
Action Project students and clients say: “During our Action Project, my team and I had to solve real-time problems that an organization faced. We had to dig down and use the tools and techniques we learned in class and got to interact with very senior executives. There is no other business school that lets students learn at this level.” Rochak Verma India, MBA Class of 2011 “The teams seem to grasp the fine details of creating a medical data pricing model as well as the necessary ‘win-win’ environment that could sustain such an operation. They did a great job.” Dr. Eric Silfen Chief Medical Officer Philips Healthcare “For us, harnessing innovative and creative ideas from student teams from all corners of the globe is a powerful source of fresh business insights and opportunities.” Michael Perman Senior Director, Global Marketing Levi’s

What Our Graduates Say Unver Sahlin, Turkey, Class of 2009 Manager, General Electric “Hult provided me with invaluable opportunities to learn about all aspects of business. During the MBA program, I improved my skills in finance, accounting, business strategy, management, pricing, communication, and sales. Moreover, Hult’s diverse culture and unique LEAP approach gave me the tools and training to be a much more well-rounded professional.” Jocelle Fernandez Munoz, Mexico, Class of 2008 Senior Operations and Strategy Consultant, Deloitte “I came to Hult to accelerate my professional maturity and make a career transition. My background in Engineering and Supply Chain Management taught me the processes, procedures, and psychology behind customer expectations. Then, building on my background, Hult gave me the technical skills in finance and strategy that every global manager needs to succeed and that I needed in order to make a career change. Hult provided me with the integrated thinking and flexibility to adapt to the changing business world.” Alessandro Apicella, Italy, Class of 2010 Consultant, KHIDR and Entertainment Entrepreneur “China is the new direction of the global economy, and Shanghai is the final destination of future decision makers. My Global Campus Rotation in Shanghai was a tremendous eyeopener and gave me a chance to acknowledge what I had been reading in the newspapers.” Soichiro Saito, Japan, Class of 2002 Business Solutions Professional, IBM Global Business Services “I came to Hult because of the school’s focus on action learning, or ‘learning by doing.’ I also really wanted to gain a U.S.-style education and liked the fact that Hult had a campus in Boston. At Hult, I learned how to lead a team in a multinational environment.” Aya Fisher, U.S., Class of 2010 Regional Senior Marketing Executive, Archimedia “Hult Dubai’s campus was a great place to experience the Middle East. Dubai’s balance between the cultures of the East and West, coupled with the many different nationalities you’ll find among your classmates, means that all students find their own niche and will have the opportunity to thrive.”
Mauricio Gil, Colombia, Class of 2008 Regional Manager, Apple “We received continual support from Hult’s Career Services team during our job search, in the form of votes of confidence, practical advice, and company introductions, and our instructors provided us with practical and relevant guides to succeed not only in finding a job, but also in distinguishing ourselves in our professional lives.” Melissa Espinoza, Venezuela, Class of 2009 Senior Tax Analyst, Boston Scientific “One of the things I most appreciate from my MBA experience at Hult is to have been exposed to such a diverse group of professionals. It was like being in 30 different business trips in a year and five job rotations—exactly what it is to do business in today’s global economy.” SeungSu Sonny Kim, Korea, Class of 2001 Senior Vice President, CJ Entertainment “Hult really seems to attract incredible professors. I have been impressed by all of my professors and the small class sizes have made it possible to really get to know my professors and interact with them. I look forward to taking what I have learned at Hult and applying it to a challenging new position with new responsibilities.” Omer Weinberger, Israel, Class of 2010 Senior Associate, Corbett Keeling Ltd. “Although I have lived in several major cities and worked in many industries in my life, the one year I spent with Hult had the strongest impact so far. The relationships created and methodologies learned will be with me for many years to come. Hult’s graduates definitely fit the ‘global player’ description—we see the world as a global village and can easily be placed in a new location and operate there with no hesitation.” Xin Wang, China, Class of 2009 AVP, Risk Department Head, SAS Business Analytics Software “Hult’s students come from around 120 different countries. That has built up the basis of my international social network, and on top of that, it has also enhanced class discussions with diverse real-world experiences from various cultures. The faculty, consisting of sophisticated academicians, entrepreneurs, and practitioners, allowed me to consolidate two key skills of mine: solid academic knowledge and hands-on experiences working effectively in the real world. All those contribute a lot to my career opportunities around the world.”
Teresa Wu, Taiwan, Class of 2009 Sales and Business Development Manager, 3M “Hult’s MBA was the perfect program for me— capitalizing on the opportunity to live amongst the locals through the campus rotation program, I studied in Shanghai and Dubai during Module C and D. Through this adventure, I put myself to the test on adjusting to new environments. I absolutely loved the experience.” Mark Tan, Singapore, Class of 2000 Head of Mortgage Financing, Hong Leong Bank “The international nature of Hult’s one-year MBA appealed to me. One of the best things was that no one nationality dominated the classroom—it felt very balanced. With a good mix of business and student life, being at Hult accelerates your career by letting you meet your best friends and future colleagues all under one roof.” Ricardo dos Santos, Paraguay, Class of 2009 General Manager, Terport S.A. “I am amazed by how much I have learned about my management style during my MBA. A sophisticated understanding of how you work as both a member and manager of a diverse team of people will prove invaluable in your career.” Yukiko Teshima, Japan, Class of 2009 Executive Director, Teshima International Corporation “I established my own marketing company in Boston. In my business, I use the skills and knowledge that I learned at Hult every day.” Glen Pak, U.S., Class of 2009 Enhancement Manager, Ipsos “I took advantage of Hult’s Global Campus Rotation to travel the world. In Dubai, students all lived together and spent a lot of time together. The energy of Shanghai brought out the character in everybody. It was so freeing. Boston has a very strong academic foundation and a lot of history. Being at Hult connected me to the world—if I had stayed in my hometown, I wouldn’t have understood the world as I do now.” Xavier Cahiz, Spain, Class of 1991 Vice President, Supply Chain, Baxter Healthcare “I’ve always wanted to develop an international career, and graduating from Hult really opened the doors to my career in international operations and business. It provided me with the language that enabled me to understand the functions of business. The understanding, knowledge, confidence, and experience I gained really springboarded my career opportunities in multiple countries.”
Chaya Keshavamurthy, India, Class of 2006 Analyst, State Street Corporation “I found that the career advice sessions and resume review workshops that we received at Hult were very helpful—they helped me to land a job at one of Boston’s best financial companies.” Yael Wagner, Israel, Class of 2004 Senior Public Relations Manager, Oracle “Working with international students reflects reality in the business world. You learn about how to navigate tensions and address concerns across all cultures. At Hult, working with my classmates is similar to the way I work every day now—except back then, we were all in the same time zone. It was an amazing experience, one which stayed with me.” Rene Nardi Rezende, Brazil, Class of 1994 Managing Director, Inotech “Working in a group with people from all over the world was one of the most gratifying experiences. It’s amazing to see how you can achieve your objectives from so many different perspectives. It’s a very powerful experience. That was one of the best things about Hult.” Hui Ming Lim, Singapore, Class of 2007 Solutions Consultant, Wincor Nixdorf “My experience in Shanghai was my most memorable part of Hult’s MBA program. The people I met through the elective courses and networking sessions helped me explore my possible future business endeavors in China. It was an exceptional experience to actually be immersed in the culture and history of China.” Pankaj Gupta, India, Class of 2006 AVP, Department Head, Reliance Capital Asset Management “Hult’s intense one-year program helped improve my business perspective and provided me with a platform to interact, learn, and apply management theories. I learned not only from exceptional faculty, but also from my fellow international students. Hult’s wide choice of electives ensured I got the right knowledge for the right job.” Maria Pia Segovia, Philippines, Class of 2010 Associate Advisor, KPMG “I knew I wanted to go to an international school to experience different cultures so I could learn how to adapt to different types of people. I also wanted a one-year program in a good campus location. Hult gave me just that—it’s a global school with a global scope.”

Action Projects give you great exposure Our Action Projects give students exposure to real-world companies as they work in small teams led by a faculty advisor to solve a business problem or think of growth channels for leading companies.

The IE-MBA is offered over a 3- or 6-month period, depending on your language needs.

Apart from traditional classroom training, you are granted unlimited access to self-study content from the world’s most flexible online English school, EF Englishtown (englishtown.com). Small class size for personalized attention Hult’s IE-MBA course is taught by an expert English instructor in a small class setting (maximum class size of six)* to ensure you receive the individual attention necessary for maximum language learning. A small class size also guarantees that your individual language needs are addressed and fulfilled. *In the event that the class size is below six persons, you may be placed in a class with other non IE-MBA corporate language students at your level.
A curriculum that combines intensive language training with MBA preparation Along with English language learning, Hult’s IE-MBA curriculum is designed to equip you with other relevant skills required to complete an MBA in English, such as applying your English skills to solve a Hult business case, building your vocabulary in specific business disciplines, learning to write and compile a presentation, and business reporting.

Finance and Insurance An MBA is a significant investment. We help you find the most beneficial funding options to cover your education-related expenses. Making it easy to afford your MBA Our one-year program is very cost-effective relative to other MBA programs, since most other programs take two years to complete. Hult students save a year of tuition fees, living expenses, and the opportunity cost of being out of the workforce. Nonetheless, we understand that financing an MBA can be challenging, particularly for international students. Furthermore, because the course is so intense, it is not possible for students to work in parallel with understanding their studies. We work with you to help find the most beneficial funding options to cover your education-related costs. These options include scholarships, fellowships, and education loans. Scholarships Hult offers a range of merit-based and need-based scholarships to reduce the tuition cost burden. These are available to all students regardless of citizenship. To be considered for these scholarships we encourage you to apply early. Decisions on scholarships are made only after an offer of admission has been made. Fellowships A limited number of fellowships are available to accepted students. These fellowships offer students the opportunity to work with Hult faculty and staff members for approximately eight hours per week. The number of fellowships varies from year to year and from campus to campus. The fellowships available each year are communicated to students at the time of application. All accepted students may apply for any fellowship position for which they feel qualified.
Education loans The majority of our students utilize some form of education loan even if they receive a scholarship or fellowship. Students requiring financing for their tuition costs have two main loan options: Bank loan Financial institutions in many countries offer MBA education financing specifically to local citizens. These loans are typically repayable after completion of the course, although terms vary widely. We are happy to work with our students to help them identify suitable financial institutions to apply for these loans. GoEd Student Financing Hult has established a partnership with GoEd Student Financing to offer student loans to international students. These loans offer very competitive interest rates. The loans are typically offered over five years with repayments starting six months after graduation.

They may be weighed differently. They may not, however, be subsumed to a standard formula or ranking. They will be considered in conjunction with all other admissions criteria and factors, in light of the School’s mission and purpose. Financial Aid Policy The Hult financial aid policy is intended to advance the School’s mission to deliver a useful and enduring business education to international professionals. It is based on the following objectives: (1) to promote a nationally, culturally, and ethnically diverse student body, (2) to encourage outstanding applicants to enroll in the Hult Program, (3) to provide financial assistance to qualified applicants in need of such assistance.

Withdrawal Policy A student may withdraw from the MBA program at any time upon giving written notice to the School’s Registrar. The withdrawing student may re-enter the program at a later date (up to five years after original enrollment), without having to reapply for admission. He or she may use any unexpired refund credit (see “Refund Policy” below) toward the receipt of educational services or materials, priced at the rate prevailing at the time of re-entry. Course choices and study program will be subject to space and scheduling availability. In addition to providing written notice to the Registrar, all students must meet with the Dean prior to withdrawing. Resource and Capacity Constraints Global Campus Rotation Program The Global Campus Rotation Program is subject to capacity constraints. Students must be in good academic standing and be up-to-date on tuition payments to participate in this program. A deposit of USD500 or equivalent is required to secure each rotation (if students wish to rotate in Module D and Module E they will be required to pay two deposits each). This deposit is refundable upon participation in the rotation. Electives Electives are subject to capacity and scheduling constraints; not all electives will be available on all campuses. In general, when oversubscribed, elective spaces are allocated based on preferences elicited from the students. iPads Hult’s intention is that all students receive an iPad as part of their Hult program. Hult cannot, however, be responsible for iPad availability and the supply of the iPads will therefore be subject to availability. Refund Policy The School grants only credit refunds that may be used within a five-year period for future educational services. It does not grant cash refunds. The date on which the notice of intention to withdraw and not re-enter is received by the Registrar, or the date on which the student is informed of his or her dismissal from the School, will determine that student’s liability for tuition and other program-related costs. 1. If the notice of intention is received before the first day of the MBA Toolbox, the student will be entitled to a full credit refund of any paid tuition and other program-related costs, less the program deposit, application fees, and insurances fees, which are nonrefundable. After the first day of class in the MBA Toolbox or in any module, the amount of any refund will be based on the following schedule:
Withdrawals after: First day of Toolbox First day of Module A First day of Module B First day of Module C First day of Module D
2. In the case of a student who receives financial aid from Hult in the form of a scholarship and/or fellowship, the amount of any credit refund will be net of such aid, prorated over five modules as follows:
Withdrawals before: First day of Module A First day of Module B First day of Module C First day of Module D First day of Module E
Credit refund will be net of: 100% total financial aid received 75% total financial aid received 50% total financial aid received 25% total financial aid received No refund will be due
Grading Procedure 1. Grading Standards Course instructors will evaluate and assess participant performance. Grades are assigned according to the Instructor’s assessment of performance on the intellectual and professional criteria established for the course. The Instructor has full authority and responsibility to establish performance criteria, evaluate participant performance, and award grades. The Faculty uses the following grading system to evaluate participant performance: Points Grade Performance 4.00 A Outstanding 3.67 A- Excellent 3.33 B+ Very Good 3.00 B Good 2.67 B- Acceptable 2.33 C+ High Marginal 2.00 C Marginal 1.67 C- Low Marginal 1.00 D Unsatisfactory 0 F Fail Acceptable graduate-level work is a B- or better. The Registrar releases official final course grades at the end of each module in the form of a transcript. Individual grade breakdowns (participation, homework, and exam grades, for example) are available only from Instructors. Every Hult student is entitled to know the manner in which his or her course grade was calculated. 2. Grade Point Average A weighted grade point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the numerical grade received for each course or module by the number of credit hours per course, totaling these figures, then dividing the sum by the total credit hours. “Pass” and “Incomplete” grades and their corresponding credits are not factored into the weighted average. A “Fail” will be factored into the weighted average as a numerical grade of zero.
Every course in which a student has enrolled, and for which a student has been assigned a letter grade, will be denoted on his or her transcript. Every letter grade denoted on the transcript will be factored into the calculation of the student’s overall GPA.
Graduation Requirements 1. Basic Requirements Participants must complete 58 credit hours of course work to be eligible for the MBA degree. Course credit is awarded for achieving a satisfactory grade on a course. All courses in Module A or B as well as the skills track courses must be completed with a satisfactory grade. Should a participant receive an “F”on a required course, this course must be re-taken at Hult or an approved institution within a period of three years from the participant’s original enrollment date and the participant must achieve a satisfactory grade. Those who satisfy all program requirements (including: participation in all courses, payment of all financial obligations, return of all library materials, and completion of all evaluations), who receive a grade other than “Incomplete” for each course, who have no outstanding Honor Code issues, and who have a final GPA of 2.70 or better are granted the MBA degree. Degrees are recommended by the Dean to the Faculty and the Board of Trustees and awarded by vote of the Faculty and the Board. In addition, for visa purposes, the student must meet fulltime student residency requirements of the campus host country. 2. Dean’s List Participants who earn a GPA of 3.60 or above for any Module are formally named to the Hult International Business School Dean’s List for that Module. Qualifying participants receive notification from the Dean with appropriate recording in the participant’s permanent academic file. With the participant’s approval, formal announcement of this scholastic achievement will be made to respective sponsors and agencies. The School is very pleased to offer this achievement award and hopes this award will serve as added incentive for all participants. 3. Graduation with Honors Participants graduating with a cumulative GPA at or above 3.60 and who are in the top 10% of the class will be designated a Hult Scholar and will receive their degree “with Distinction” indicating the highest honor. Those whose cumulative GPA is 3.60 or above but who are not in the top 10% of the class will receive their degree “with Excellence,” as recommended to the Faculty and Board of Trustees by the Dean. Dismissal from the Program The School reserves the right to dismiss any participant at any time whose academic performance is unsatisfactory, whose conduct constitutes unacceptable professional behavior, or whose legal or medical problems hinder satisfactory performance. In such cases, the Dean will notify the participant in writing, a degree will not be awarded to the participant, and, as appropriate, the participant’s sponsor will be notified.
Will receive a credit refund for: Tuition for Modules A, B, C, D and E Tuition for Modules B, C, D and E Tuition for Modules C, D and E Tuition for Modules D and E No refund will be due
