Part-Time MBA concentration in Global Business

If you want to be an effective manager in a complex and evolving global business environment, the MBA concentration in Global Business will help you get there

A Global Business concentration is especially valuable when paired with a primary concentration in a functional field, like finance or supply chain management. By pursuing a Global Business concentration, you send a signal to employers that you have mastered a functional specialization while also having a broad, strategic view of how to manage in a global economy.


Expanding on a foundational course in international business, you will select from a range of courses that address contemporary issues involved in managing in a global environment—courses such as cross-cultural management, negotiations, strategic alliances and technology transfer. You can also choose from courses in international trade or finance, procurement, marketing, and even travel abroad courses.

  • Global Management Strategy
  • International Financial Markets
  • International Trade and Macroeconomics
  • Management of Innovation and Technology
