The CS Immersion classes are offered in the Winter and Summer quarters.
If you are a first year current Booth student, you are encouraged to apply to the Winter/Spring deadline so that Immersion courses can be started in the Winter quarter, if necessary. If you apply to the Summer/Autumn deadline, you are required to either take and pass the programming placement exam OR take MPCS 50101 Concepts of Programming (Immersion Programming) in the Summer quarter. This will ensure you are ready to start MPCS classes in the Autumn quarter of your 2nd year.
A complete MPCS application is required to be considered for the joint program, including transcripts, essay questions and three letters of recommendation. You may self report your GMAT/GRE scores and we can confirm them with Booth. We will not be able to get any other materials from your Booth application.
Students must be admitted separately to the Booth MBA program and the MPCS MS in Computer Science program to participate in this joint program. Admissions are handled separately by each program.
