Global MBA
Rome, Italy

Program Overview

The Global MBA program incorporates innovative ideas and a real-world experience in a balanced approach to graduate education. The cohort class structure offers a lock-step, planned curriculum in an executive setting. Members of each class begin the program together sharing the same educational experience and taking the same courses in the same sequence throughout the year. Through this approach, effective student teams are developed which often grow into long-term friendships.

Students are given the option to earn a Masters in International Management. Students who pursue the double degree program will spend nine days in Rome, Italy during both fall and spring semesters. Classes are taught in English; course content includes European culture and customs, international trade practices and logistics, international marketing, international law, and international management.
