 Master of Business Administration – Global MBA


 New Degree Program Request:

The GlobalMBA is a unique double degree 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 universities: Cologne University of Applied Sciences (Germany), the University of Warsaw (Poland), Dongbei University of Finance and Economics (China) and the University of North Florida (USA). Each school holds accreditation in their respective countries. Upon finalizing their studies, students obtain two degrees, a GlobalMBA from UNF, and the Master of International Management and Intercultural Communication jointly conferred by Technische Hochschule Köln and the University of Warsaw. This program is currently offered as a concentration of the MBA graduate program at the Coggin College of Business, and this proposal is intended to create a standalone program called GlobalMBA. The purpose of this program is to give young professionals a deep understanding of doing business internationally that allows them to lead Florida’s companies to thrive internationally.

This double degree program has 63 credit hours required for completion.

This program does not require additional resources: The GlobalMBA program has been running as a concentration of the MBA program for the last 19 years, than, there are no additional resources necessary for this change.
