I just received my invite to interview this Friday afternoon. The school scheduled an on-campus lunch with a first year student prior to the interview, so I'm excited to get to meet 2 current students this week.

Good luck everyone!

Hello current students,

Could you comment on any opportunities to study/travel abroad at BC as an MBA student?

Thanks!
kheown


Kheown,

I just wanted to follow up on this post since we received more information -- our study abroad options for this spring are London and Latin America. The London trip is part of IME which I believe is more finance orientated, and the Latin America trip is more consulting orientated. I have copied the e-mail below we received. Hope this helps.

Email:

"Our International Management Experience (IME) programs provide exposure to economic activity, market trends and culture. These three-credit elective courses, which culminate with trips abroad, have been highly regarded by past participants. Pre-travel course work includes exploration of economic, governmental and social factors that affect the conduct of business in a variety of industries and contexts. The trip involves visiting business executives, government leaders and entrepreneurs, observing first-hand the application of management principles and strategies in the global arena. For Spring 2016, we plan to offer IME London, which will involve a trip during BC's Spring Break, in March.


The International Consulting Projects (ICP) are elective courses in which students conduct and complete the research and analysis for their projects, with faculty guidance, over the course of the semester and, subsequently, present the deliverables to the clients in their respective countries. During the Spring 2016 semester, we will offer ICP Latin America. Travel is scheduled for mid-late May. "

Thank you! It definitely helps!

I read that those trips change every year, and IME past destinations have included China, France, Italy, Germany, India, Singapore, South Korea... Do you know if it's possible to do 2 IMEs (one during the first spring break and another one during the second)?

Thank you!

kheown, you are correct that IME generally rotates locations. I would reach out to admissions to ask about IME - regardless since there is multiple study abroad programs I think there will be good opportunities to travel if that is important to you.

Did any international Round 1 applicant receive interview call? Can anyone throw some light on how long the college takes before it starts rolling out interview calls?

My application status has remained the same for the past 20 odd days.

Thank you so much!

Here's my timeline throughout the admissions process at BC:
I submitted my application on 10/17
Invited to interview on 10/20
Interviewed on 10/30
Admitted on 11/23

About the interview, I posted a short debrief on this thread. I interviewed with a second year student who had a similar background (international, focused on finance...). I thought it went quite well, and this just confirms it! :-D

Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

Best,
kheown
