MBA Global Business

Successes and failures in the business world are often dependent on a corporation “going global.”

In order for these companies to be successful performers in the international market, they will need managers who are strategic thinkers and can make decisions based on the benefits of conducting business beyond domestic borders.

The M.B.A. with a Concentration in Global Business provides an opportunity for students to learn about the opportunities and challenges of achieving objectives in a world that is becoming more interconnected and dependent on international economies. Students learn about the unique financial challenges of a global business, how to manage human resources across the world, how to deal with a variety of cultures and customs, and about international trade and investments.

As with all courses in the College of Business and Management, ethics is woven throughout so that students can apply ethical principles to decisions about typical issues found in the global workplace. In order to take theory to practice, students will either complete an internship in a global company or participate in an international trip. Either option allows students to experience firsthand the practices that make global business successful.

In their final course of the program, students develop and present a capstone paper that focuses on a global strategy that supports the achievement of an organizational goal. Students who complete the M.B.A. with a concentration in global business are well-equipped to become middle- and upper-level managers of a global corporation.
