International Scholars Program (ISP)

An International Experience
The transition to the working world has become even more competitive and college graduates are taking longer to find jobs that meet their credentials. To land the jobs best suited for them, college graduates need that edge which will differentiate them and catch the attention of prospective employers. Rensselaer's International Scholars Program provides that edge with a one-year accelerated master's degree program which includes a ten-week summer term abroad.

The Rensselaer International Scholar will earn an MBA or a master's degree in Engineering Science. The ten-week summer term includes study abroad in Rome and Shanghai, immersing the students in those cities while providing an intense learning experience centered around their business and engineering cultures. They will meet and be taught by world leaders in industry and visit major corporations in both cities. Also, they will be part of a project team, gaining first-hand understanding of global business and advanced technology.
