Start your path to success
Graduate study in the US is exciting and demanding. As a new university student in the U.S., you will encounter challenges: navigating a new culture in a foreign language; using English on a daily basis with peers and professors; adjusting to the different expectations of American professors; learning new styles of teaching in the classroom; learning techniques to effectively contribute to team projects and assignments; and understanding U.S. academic and business culture.
In partnership with the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, William & Mary offers a special 4 week intensive preparatory program for incoming graduate business students. The program combines advanced English language training; academic skills; presentation and teamwork strategies; and guest lectures to prepare students to succeed in their graduate business programs at the Raymond A.
