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.
