• GlobalMBA Curriculum

    The GlobalMBA curriculum for the current and next cohorts are available at the links below. To understand the tables, recall that each university in the consortium selects a small group of students who function as a single cohort, studying together throughout the program. The opportunity to live, study, and travel with students from other nations represents one of the most important learning experiences in the GlobalMBA. All instruction is in English. 


    Teamwork is used intensively in the GlobalMBA. Traditionally each team consists of at least one student from each institution, deepening the intercultural aspects of the program.  Upon successful completion of all program requirements, each student earns two master's degrees and a certificate of attendance.

    • Hold a bachelor's (undergraduate) degree by the time that they begin the GlobalMBA
