School of Global Business

Welcome from Chair Brinker

Welcome to the School of Global Business

 

Greetings,

Thank you for visiting Arcadia University’s School of Global Business, your path to greater success in the increasingly international marketplace.  I joined Arcadia University in the fall of 1997 as a Professor of Accounting.  As the current Chair and Executive Director of our MBA program, I look forward to sharing with all of you the opportunities our school provides and future developments that are about to make your experience at Arcadia even more valuable to your career.

Students are the top priority of faculty, staff, and administration at Arcadia University. The School of Global Business was founded on three major principles; developing skills for a global marketplace, experiential learning—providing real-world business experience, and a personal educational experience. The school offers undergraduate degree programs in Accounting, Healthcare Administration, International Business and Culture, Sport Management, and Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, Management, Economics, and Finance. We also offer minors in Accounting, Economics, Healthcare Administration, and Sport Management. For over a decade, we have also offered a Masters of Business Administration with a Global Perspective. This unique program requires two international business experiences where students travel to both a developed and an emerging economy.

Our programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council on Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and are designed to deliver a challenging first-hand experience for those who wish to obtain a global perspective in dealing with the demands of managing in a world-wide economy. The School of Global Business is proud to announce that within six months of graduation, 100% of our students either have employment opportunities, or continue their studies at graduate or professional schools. This past year, 100% of our M.B.A. students completed their degree in 22 months or less.

Arcadia University’s School of Global Business provides numerous opportunities to enhance your management skills through meeting with business executives, alumni and our global curriculum; along with study abroad opportunities through Arcadia University's College of Global Studies. School of Global Business students are currently studying in London, Sydney, Rome, Barcelona, and beyond. Sixty percent of our undergraduate students study abroad, while 100% of our M.B.A. students have study abroad experiences.

The School of Global Business at Arcadia University invites you to come to our beautiful campus to meet with our enrollment management representatives, students, and faculty. Transform your view about business education and meet the future with Arcadia University's School of Global Business.

Sincerely,

Prof. Tom Brinker
