Prior to applying for an exchange programme, the applicant should have completed at least one semester as a full-time student at LUMS

An MBA student must hold a 3.5 CGPA or above in their first semester.

An invitation email is sent out to the MBA students which provides them all the details regarding the exchange programme i.e. information about the host university, course offerings, time period of the programme, selection criteria and deadline for submitting applications. Interested candidates send their nominations which are tabulated by the office based on the class academic rankings. Shortlisted students are informed of the selection and given a week’s time to make the final decision to go on the exchange programme. The selected student list is prepared in order of priority on the basis of their academic achievements at LUMS. Once a student is selected for an international school, they are sent the complete admissions package, which is filled under the supervision of the office managers. ERO will facilitate the candidates throughout their course selection process and rest of the necessary academic requirements.

Students are informed that taking the necessary steps to acquire a visa is their own responsibility. The LUMS External Relations Office only helps students complete their documents and provide necessary information for a successful application.
