Info/Answers to SNOC FAQs

  1. PLEASE look up the course details (timezone, syllabus, topics etc.) and check the timing of classes in your own time zone very carefully to make sure that the course will fit your schedules before you apply. We want to be able to offer seats to students who are truly interested and committed to the courses. It is disappointing to see a student drop a course for a foreseeable reason.
  2. You will not be able to apply for other international programs/projects if you drop the SNOC after getting accepted with foreseeable reasons or without legitimate reasons.
  3. Applying only one SNOC is recommended, and no more than two courses. (Additional applications-it’s the case of the 2nd SNOCs choice-will be accepted if courses are not full after ROUND 1 application)
  4. First time applicants will need to pass the pre-selection (please wait for official notice from the IMBA office). Students passed the pre-selection will be contacted by the IMBA office to give the application link and name and address of the school administrator who will be cc’ed on the auto-response to student applications.
  5. MBA students are granted to transfer 2 credits for one SNOC as an elective. Students successfully completing each course will receive a grade and a certificate of completion by the school offering the course and contacted by the IMBA Office to direct how to apply for credit transfer.
  6. Teamwork is an important aspect of the GNAM Courses. Students who quit the GNAM course halfway will fail the course with Fail shown on Renmin’s MBA transcript.

Additional Info:

Current MBA students (2020 cohort) applying for the SNOCs with credit purpose will be given priority for available seats; The Part-time MBA Class of 2022 (2020 cohort) should keep in mind that you have RMBS compulsory courses on Weekends in the Fall semester.
