What qualifications will you need?
Admission to a US graduate program will require an appropriate undergraduate degree. It should be in a similar area to that of your Masters, but it may not have to be on exactly the same topic.
Universities will set their own minimum requirements, but you will normally need to hold a 2.1 or it is equivalent. Highly selective universities will have much stricter requirements.
Regardless of the outcome of your degree, it will normally need to be converted to GPA before it can be used for a U.S. graduate education application. (A UK 2.1 is roughly equivalent to a cumulative average of at least 3.0).
Whatever you’re academic field, a master’s degree from a US institution will be backed by the reputation of one of the most popular and renowned education systems in the world. You will leave with a qualification that will be internationally recognized for its academic quality and for the range of transferable skills that are the hallmark of an American graduate program.
If you have studied for an academic master’s degree, you will have gained in-depth knowledge of your subject at an advanced level and will be exceptionally well prepared for doctoral research in the United States (or elsewhere).
Or, if you studied for a professional master’s degree, you will have obtained a well-accredited qualification in the system that pioneered professional postgraduate degrees such as the MBA and is still considered to offer some of the best programs in the world.
Whatever you’ve studied, your time abroad in a country as socially, culturally, and geographically diverse as the United States will also enhance your resume in a number of ways. Future employers will be impressed by your willingness to take on new challenges and experiences.
You will also be well-prepared for careers in international markets shaped by U.S. companies and business practices.
