4. Support Letters
a) Two Recommendation Letters
Using the online application system, input the name, title and contact information of two people you wish to have recommend you. The email address given must be to their professional email account, and not a gmail, hotmail, or yahoo (etc) account. Your recommender(s) should be 1) an academic advisor or professor, and 2) an immediate supervisor from your work, and/or a company official. An automatic request email will be sent to the two professionals you indicate by IUJ, with a link to receive the Recommendation Letter form. We highly suggest you inform your recommenders about this process ahead of you submitting their names to IUJ.
The recommendations should be filled out, and printed by your referee and, after signing, must be placed in a sealed envelope with recommender’s signature across the seal. You should submit these, using postal mail, with the other required documents in one admissions packet. You may use the label provided in the online Check List to ensure delivery to IUJ.
If you are not in a position to submit confidential statements from two different types of recommenders as indicated above, two statements provided by different individuals from the academic institution you have attended, or your workplace shall be acceptable. Every effort should be made to have the statements written in (or translated into) English.
b) Endorsement Form (Domestic Special Screening applicants including 1-year MBA applicants only)
Those applying to 1-year MBA or those applying for Domestic Special Screening must submit an Endorsement Form from their sponsoring company, specifically the HR officer in charge. The form should be download from the online application site. Applicants need to obtain the official company stamp or signature on the form. Alternatively, the sponsoring or hosting companies can issue their own letter of endorsement stating that the applicants will be granted financial support or a leave to attend all classes and required program activities.
・ Photocopies of recommendations are not acceptable.
・ Once envelopes containing the recommendations have been opened, they are invalid.
