Is this option right for me?

This option is open to only those students who are interested in eventually pursuing the MBS degree but may not have all the requirements ready at the time of application (e.g. letters of recommendation) and would like to start taking courses 

If you are on an F1 or J1 visa, you are not eligible for part-time non-degree study
