  • Examine the context in which global business operates.

International MBA Language Tracks

  • French
  • German
  • Spanish

The International MBA language tracks give you three options of languages to pursue. Candidates who desire new language acquisition will take beginner Language 1 courses. Candidates who demonstrate language capability to waive Language 1 are able to take an additional functional core course. Those who have the highest capabilities and waive Language 2 may take an additional elective course in the fall. To round out the language training in an immersive environment, the final language courses will be taken in an international location where the language is spoken widely.

International MBA Global Track

The International MBA global track will be for students who do not wish to learn a second language, but still desire to build global business expertise. Candidates who choose the global track will, in place of a new language, take additional functional  courses or international business courses. To round out their global immersion, they will pursue business courses at a Moore School partner institution in a foreign location where English is spoken widely.
