Pre-MBA Program

Targeted Pre-MBA preparation helps you gain the language and study skills you need to thrive in your MBA program.

Pre-MBA Program


Establish a strong foundation of English language and academic skills

Offered in partnership with EF Education First, our Pre-MBA program equips non-native English speakers with the English fluency and fundamental skills necessary to succeed in a competitive MBA degree program taught entirely in English. Flexible in length, this program is offered over a six- or nine-month period, so you can tailor your program to suit your language level and academic needs. With courses covering English language training, entrance exam preparation, business fundamentals, and specialist academic modules, you will gain the knowledge and confidence to succeed in your future studies.

Combining intensive language training with graduate degree preparation

Along with English language learning, the curriculum is designed to help you develop other relevant skills required to complete a graduate degree in English, such as learning how to research effectively, write academic papers and prepare for TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, or GRE exams. To qualify for this program, you must have a Bachelor degree and the English-language skills required for this level of study.

Small class size for personalized attention

Pre-MBA courses are taught by expert instructors in a small class setting (maximum class size of 17) to ensure you receive the individual attention necessary to maximize your language learning. Students also benefit from one on-one attention from their University Pathway Manager, who is available outside of class to guide their studies and provide professional advice.

Single application process

The Pre-MBA program will also give you direct access to Hult’s top-ranked, one-year MBA program through a simplified application process. A single application for both the Pre-MBA program and the Hult MBA program ensures a smooth transition into your business school career.

Study in the U.S. or the U.K.

The Pre-MBA program is available in Boston, San Francisco, or London, allowing you to enjoy the best the U.S. and the U.K. have to offer and providing experience in a global classroom.
