Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Certificate program? +

Certificate programs are graduate-level, advanced studies in specialized skills. Develop new skills and build expertise in a specialized area to update your professional profile, advance your career, or broaden your knowledge base. You can earn a professional graduate certificate at SHU in Modern Business Management, Global Leadership, Investment, or Finance.

How many courses are there in the Certificate program? +

What are the differences between the US and the EU campuses? +

The same SHU MBA program exists in two places--Fairfield, Connecticut (USA) and Luxembourg City, Luxembourg (EU). The university in Luxembourg is a branch of the Jack Welch College of Business of the US campus. However, MBA with Internship program is only offered in Luxembourg.

At SHU in Luxembourg, additional course material may be discussed surrounding European policy and viewpoints i.e., in Accounting and Law . The  Luxembourg courses are either taught by full-time US main campus professors  or Luxembourg-based practitiones with strong academic qualifications.. All classes can be taken in class, although on-line classes for a few courses are also available.

Once accepted into the MBA program in Luxembourg, you are matriculated as a student on the main campus in Fairfield and always have the option to take courses in the US.

Quality education and a high caliber of academic standards are the most important components of a university, how do you choose your professors?

Sacred Heart’s approach to managing the quality of the student learning experience and providing public confidence in the quality and standards of higher education all boils down to the right choice in professors who understand what it is like to be an entrepreneur and work in a corporate environment.

When can I start the Part-time MBA, MBA with Internship, or Certificate program? +

The Part-time MBA and Certificate programs are ongoing programs that allow you to start at almost any time of the year.

The MBA with Internship starts every year in mid-August or mid-July if foundation courses are required..

Application deadlines are:
European/EEA students - 1 June of the year you start the progam
All other students - 1 March

What is the process for a student visa for non-EU students? +

Student visas will only be granted to students who are enrolling in the MBA with Internship  program. Once students have been admitted to the university, they will need to  apply for a student visa. Our staff will help you with the visa process. IMPORTANT: This process can take 3 to 4 months.

Do I need to have a university degree to do a Certificate program at SHU? +

No, you do not need a university degree to participate in this program. Please contact us to evaluate your professional work experience.

Do I need to take the GMAT? +

You do not need to take the GMAT if you have :

  • A graduate degree from an accredited institution, or a J.D., PhD. or M.D.
  • A professional certification i.e. CPA, CFA, CMA, CIA or CFP
  • A SHU Certificate with a min GPA of 3.5
  • 5+ years of substantive work experience
Do I need to do TOEFL/ IELTS if English is not my first language? +

Maybe. As part of our supportive learning environment, we want to set you up for success. A lack of English proficiency can be a serious obstacle to your performance in the MBA program. If you did your studies in English or you worked in an English speaking environment for several years you don’t need to pass an English test.

Our staff can assist in assessment and finding tutoring if required.

Can I transfer credits from my previous school? +

Sacred Heart University is an accredited university. If you have taken some courses at other accredited universities, our academic review board will review the syllabus for each course and more than likely the credits will be transferred directly to your SHU program here in Luxembourg.

I’m accepted. What do I do now? +

We recommend meeting with the Academic Director to plan your course of study. At this meeting, you will review the order of courses necessary to complete the degree and how your availability fits exactly into completing the coursework. All schedules can be tailored made for the student.
