All applicants who are not US citizens or permanent residents should apply as early as possible to ensure sufficient time to submit and receive an F1 Student Visa, required to attend the first residency in Durham, NC, USA, in March. International applicants should apply by May 4, 2016, to ensure sufficient time for visa processing.

All applicants are required to complete the core set of application materials; however, non-US applicants have additional application requirements and instructions, which are described below.

If you have any questions about the application, contact Admissions Counselor Diane Eytcheson at 1.919.660.7705 or global-mba-info@fuqua.duke.edu. She's here to guide you through the admissions process.

    • If your materials are not in English, you must submit both original and translated documents. 
    • Transcripts/academic records must include:
      • Course names
      • Grades received
      • Degree name
      • Degree date
    • All records must be certified by an appropriate university official.
    • All applicants are eligible for scholarships; however, scholarship funds are limited and do not cover the full cost of tuition and expenses.
    • For International Students: An international student loan program is available that does NOT require a U.S. cosigner.
    • More information available in the financial aid website.
  • If you are offered admission to the Global Executive MBA program, you must submit your 7,500 USD tuition deposit to begin the visa application process. Upon receipt of your deposit, we will email you a link to a visa web form.

    Visa Tips and Guidelines

    • Review the visa check list, which will be sent to you after we receive your tuition deposit, to learn what documentation is required for your visa application. 
    • Once Duke Visa Services receives from Fuqua your completed web form and its supporting documentation, your visa documents (including your I-20) will be issued by Duke Visa Services within 2 calendar weeks.  
    • Upon receipt of your Duke-issued I-20, you will receive instructions about paying your mandatory Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) fee and how to schedule your visa stamp interview with a US Embassy.
