1. What does jMGEM stand for?
The acronym jMGEM stands for joint Master of Global Entrepreneurship and Management. It is jointly developed and operated by the University of San Francisco in the U.S., IQS in Barcelona, Spain, and Fu Jen Catholic University in Taipei, Taiwan.
2. Can I apply if I do not have a bachelor’s degree in business?
You can if you have earned an equivalent bachelor's degree, such as Industrial Engineering. We consider and accept applicants who have obtained broad-based knowledge and skills in various foundation disciplines and business disciplines, such as economics, statistics, accounting, finance, business law, operations management, and marketing. Make sure your transcript arrives on time, if you choose to apply, so that we have ample time to review your case carefully.
3. Can I apply if I have earned a bachelor’s degree in business more than three years ago?
Not at this time. We assume all admitted students have a fresh memory of what they have learned in college.
4. Can I apply if I am not a graduate of USF, IQS, or FJU?
As long as you have earned your bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in the last three years, you can, and we appreciate your interest. Please register and apply as early as you can, because it may take more time for all application materials to arrive on time.
5. Can I apply if I am not a citizen of the United States, Spain, or Taiwan?
Yes, you can. We do not discriminate on the basis of nationality and country of origin.
6. What is a Home Institution?
Each applicant is assigned a Home Institution, which is primarily based on the applicant’s citizenship status. For instance, citizens of Spain and other European countries will be assigned to IQS as their Home Institution. The Home Institution will provide primary services, including assisting you in completing the application package, answering your admissions related questions, and collecting tuition payments. Each applicant will have one Home Institution.
7. What is a Host Institution?
The Host Institution is the school where all students are currently taking their classes. The Host Institution will provide academic and accommodation services, such as reporting your grades, arranging dormitory rooms, and conducting co-curricular activities.
8. Do I have to know all three languages before I apply?
No, you do not have to know Spanish or Chinese to apply, although such language skills will be helpful. Of course, you have to be proficient in English, since the program’s language of instruction is English.
9. Does the program offer language training while in Spain and Taiwan?
IQS and FJU will consider providing such training courses, if there is sufficient demand.
10. What is the English language requirement for non-native English speaker applicants?
Applicants who did not earn an undergraduate or graduate degree or have not completed one year of study in a degree program in English at a higher education institution in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, Australia or New Zealand must submit a TOEFL, IELTS or PTE Academic Score. Please note, students from countries where the government required 11 years of mandatory English instruction may be exempt from providing English language test scores according to the discretion of an individual graduate program. Students must achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 79 (internet-based), TOEFL score of 550 (paper-based), IELTS score of 6.0, or a Pearson Test of English Academic score of 53.
11. Does the program offer scholarships or other forms of financial aid?
Yes. We are working with business partners and other potential donors to set up scholarships. Please come back to visit the Scholarship page again as we will post the latest scholarship information there.
