THE PROGRAM
Program Overview

The GlobalMBA is a unique program providing graduate students the opportunity to combine intensive classroom study with residential experiences in four countries: Germany, Poland, China and the United States. The GlobalMBA is offered by a consortium of four outstanding universities:

University of Warsaw

Warsaw Poland February - June

Dongbei University of Finance & Economics

Dalian China June - August

Each university selects a small group of students who function as a cohort throughout the GlobalMBA. The cohort, of approximately forty students, studies together, spending one term at each institution. The curriculum includes courses in the international aspects of each business discipline, in addition to courses on intercultural communication and international business environments in each country. All instruction is in English. Upon successful completion of the program, students earn two master’s degrees – Master of Business Administration from UNF and a Master of International Management and Intercultural Communication jointly conferred by University of Warsaw and Cologne University of Applied Sciences.

 

The experience and knowledge that GlobalMBA students gain by living, studying, and learning about four diverse countries and working closely with the international students in the program prepares them for exciting careers in international business.
