The University of Massachusetts is the largest public research university in New England, and one of the most respected, established in 1863 as a land-grant research university. Amherst, MA, is acclaimed as one of the best college towns in America, and the university is consistently ranked as one of the greatest in the nation.

Accredited by AACSB, the Isenberg School of Management has been awarded top-tens in Business Week and the Princeton Review. As one of New England’s oldest business schools, the Isenberg School has a wealth of history and reputation from which its graduates may draw, as well as well-connected, highly successful graduates who remain dedicated to the school and its students as mentors and donors.

The UMass online program is designed for ultimate flexibility for working professionals who have demanding schedules and cannot take the time for residential requirements of campus visits. Online students need never visit campus at all. However, for those who want the flexibility of online instruction with the face-to-face interaction of a classroom, the school offers blended courses at UMass satellite campuses as well.

Application materials required:

•    An undergraduate degree from an accredited US institution (or its equivalent)
official GMAT OR GRE scores,
•    two letters of recommendation (professional preferred),
•    official transcripts
•    resume/CV

Tuition costs $2295 per course, but loans are available. Students who are interested in attending need not enter into the program on faith; prospective students may take two courses before applying officially, and the Isenberg School has dedicated online counselors to answer questions, as well as evening advising hours for students and prospective students who cannot get in touch with them during working hours.
