What will I learn?

The Pre-Master's program at Johnson & Wales University is designed for outstanding international students who have completed a three-year bachelor’s degree in countries where the three-year bachelor’s degree is considered the dominant degree in specific areas of study. The program provides qualified three-year degree holders the opportunity, through a Pre-Master's schedule of undergraduate courses, to equate their education to a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree while fulfilling Pre-Masters program prerequisites. Students successfully completing the Pre-Master's program with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 will enroll directly into their selected graduate business program.
