M.B.A. with a Global Perspective Degree Program
Curriculum and Coursework
The MBA curriculum is delivered using a cohort model. Students take accelerated seven-week courses over a 19-22-month period. On-campus courses meet 4.5 hours per week for a total of 31.5 contact hours. Out-of-class readings, assignments, research, projects, group work, etc. will require a minimum of 10 to 20 hours per week. Courses utilize a variety of delivery techniques such as textbooks, case studies, individual/group projects, experiential exercises and guest speakers.
Two International Experiences
Embedded in the program are two one-week international travel experiences. These will be credit-bearing offerings (2 credits) enabling students to gain firsthand knowledge of the challenges of global businesses in both a developing and a developed economy. Students complete the MBA program with the final course, Global Strategic Management.
Three Optional Concentrations
Students also may choose to select a business area of concentration within the M.B.A. with a Global Perspective. These areas include Entrepreneurship, Finance and Leadership. Students who pursue an area of concentration complete a 36-45 -credit degree program that includes three additional courses (9 credits) in the chosen business area concentration. The concentration courses are offered in a fully online seven-week accelerated format and can be taken concurrently with the students’ planned program.
