American Universities Admission Program, the leading organization in assisting foreign (international) students enter US universities, is pleased to offer its 2005 rankings of US MBA for international students. Since 1995 we guarantee admission into MBA to international students. This year our  students through the AUAP Selection + Guaranteed Admission Program ($2000)   have been accepted at : Columbia, Cornell, U. Penn, NYU(New York University), Duke, Yale, North Carolina, Thunderbird, Illinois, etc. To see if you qualify please fill the detailed questionnaire

This classification, made through the professional expertise of the institution's more than 35 directors of admissions, differs from traditional US MBA classifications as it is aimed specifically at international/foreign students, who wish to pursue an American MBA. It is based on:

1) World Image (determined by a panel of recruiters) 
2) Academic Reputation (through Scientific US surveys) 
3) Graduate Starting salary (as published by the Universities) 

The acceptance rates go down: 9.7% for Harvard , 7.9% for Stanford  39% for the 20th. The average GMAT test  scores are rising constantly: 711 for Columbia and MIT, 700 for Northwestern, etc.  We noticed also a drop in Scholarships due to budget constraints. More and more MBA are professional degrees for individuals that can finance it, thanks to a good & promising career start. 

Therefore,  it is unfortunately more and more difficult to be admitted  into good US MBA programs, which are so important for a career. Fortunately our organization, AUAP,  guarantees admissions into AACSB accredited MBA thanks to its network of 35 active or retired Directors of admissions "
