Alliant International University

Our partnership with EduConnect USA gives international students the chance to earn an executive-style MBA in just one year and then work for two years at one of our partner host companies. To make this possible, we offer grants and an interest-free payment plan that helps make studying and working in the USA more accessible to international students.

The Executive MBA program is offered by Alliant International University at their Los Angeles campus. The course is taught in an executive format, including online synchronous weekly classes and monthly in-person class sessions. These in-person sessions require 2 to 3 days of attendance on weekends or weekdays, which will be determined in advance.


First Year: Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

International students can work full-time for 10 months at the most during the first year while studying toward their MBA and receive a salary to help pay for their tuition.


Second Year: Optional Practical Training (OPT)

Students work full-time during the second year of the program to validate their degree through practical training. Most students will obtain middle management positions.


Advantages: The program allows students to move from operational positions to managerial positions over a 2-year commitment.
