If you choose Northeastern University as one of your partner schools, please note that you may be eligible for a J-1 visa sponsorship to complete the Ms in International Management program of studies.
You will get full information about starting the VISA process from the Student Services Team upon your enrollment.
If you are not a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, you will need a student visa for the duration of your studies at Northeastern. The application process for the student visa requires the submission of documents to Northeastern and an appointment at your local US Embassy. This process usually occurs sometime in May, June or July.
If your internship is outside of your home country and you will not return to your home country before departing for Boston, you will need to book an appointment at the US Embassy in your current location. The Embassy will likely require documentation that proves that you are in the country of your internship legally (i.e. proof of a visa and/or letter from the employer stating employment dates). Please be sure to contact the US Embassy responsible for the location of your internship to inquire about specific documentation required.
If your internship is in the USA, you will not be able to transfer the internship visa to a student visa. You will need to apply for a new visa for the start of the program in Boston. This will require that you leave the USA and make a visa appointment at a US Embassy. This may require that you return to your home country. There is no guarantee that a US Embassy responsible for a country outside of your home country will allow you to book a visa appointment without specific documentation for the reason that you are in that country. Be sure to consider this when planning your internship an allow yourself a few weeks in your home country before the start of semester 1 in Boston to manage the visa application procedures.
If a student becomes ill during the programme and can provide appropriate medical evidence, a deferral will be offered to recommence the programme the following academic year. The programme payments are still to be made in the normal sequence in order to guarantee the student’s place for the following academic year. If the payments are not made, then a place cannot be guaranteed. For some schools the re-registration the following academic year may involve a small additional registration fee.

MIM is a programme including two partner schools, therefore School/Partner A (NEOMA Business School, DCU Business School, UDLAP, UCSC and Northeastern University) and School/Parnter B (ESB Business School at Reutlingen University, DCU Business School and D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University) cannot be the same. The choice is yours to select two schools. Please also note that the Ireland/Germany tracks does not exist!
Starting dates vary from school to school, from August/September to early October of each year.
The Study Block 1 of the MIM Intake 2017/18 will start at the following dates:

All courses (core courses and elective courses) are taught in English, regardless of the country of study.
The MIM programme is taught entirely in English. Thus there is no difficulty to follow the lessons. Language teaching is NOT included in the various MIM tracks. Some schools may offer language courses either free of charge or at a cost.
The 10-to-15 month (the length is depending on the track choice) MIM programme is divided into three study blocks, each one representing 30 ECTS credits. Thus the entire programme represents 90 ECTS credits.
Please note: For US MIM it is 30 US or 60 ECTS credits as Northeastern University does not require a master’s thesis.
The length of a student’s programme depends on the followin criteria:
– The number of ECTS credits held upon admission
– The choice of the track (e.g. for the US degree track the graduation is in May).
– The local school regulations/academic calender
