Long Island University (LIU) Post Campus

One of the largest and most comprehensive private universities in the USA, Long Island University (LIU) is nationally recognized for its strength in the liberal arts and sciences, business and management, performing and media arts, and information science. LIU's Post campus is one of America's most beautiful and safest college campuses. Rolling green lawns, 3 historic mansions, 308 landscaped acres and close proximity to New York City provide the ideal environment for study and extracurricular activities.

LIU Post provides individualized attention to each student with both the small class sizes and
the ability to customize the wide selection of study programs to help meet their unique goals.
The average student to teacher ratio is 13:1. International students are offered special programs
that give them access to, and smooth their transition into, the American University environment:


ESL Transition Program
• Undergraduate Transition Program and
Graduate Transition Program available
• Usually 1 or 2 semesters duration,
depending on English language level
• Curriculum includes language acquisition
(listening, speaking, writing, grammar,
reading), academic preparation
(library mentoring program, tutoring
services, labs, test taking skill, note
taking) and cultural adaptation

courses while improving English proficiency
• No official TOEFL or IELTS score needed

Pre-MBA Bridge Program
The Pre-M.B.A. or “Bridge Program” is a nondegree program that allows students to earn
the additional 30 credits needed to equate
their three-year bachelor’s degree to that of a
four-year US bachelor’s degree. This program
offers the equivalent of the fourth year of
undergraduate coursework necessary to start
the MBA Master’s curriculum. The GMAT is
recommended but not required. Students can
be considered for admission without the GMAT
and can prepare for the exam while on campus.
Completion of the Bridge Program does
not guarantee students acceptance into
the MBA Program. Students must formally
apply for admission into the MBA program
after beginning the second semester of
the Bridge Program, and must submit an
acceptable GMAT score before they can
be accepted to the MBA program.
