The Darla Moore School of Business is ranked No. 1 in the nation for international business. Candidates of our 22-month International MBA program will participate in an international immersion which includes courses and projects that will elevate their understanding of cultural and business dynamics in a vibrant international market.
Cultivate a multi-national mindset.
One reason our International MBA alumni are unstoppable? They truly live international business while they’re learning it. That’s also why U.S. News & World Report has ranked the International MBA among the nation’s top three programs for more than 30 consecutive years.
No other International MBA program offers you so many choices to enhance your degree as well as a higher level of international immersion opportunities. You’ll be plunged into the language, market and culture of a community you choose for a richer, more meaningful learning experience that no classroom can deliver.
You choose from two tracks of study — the Global Track for in-country immersion where English is widely spoken or the Language Track for immersion in an international environment that includes language study.
Our challenging, 22-month International MBA program begins annually in July.
Candidates choose an International MBA in one of two tracks: language or global. Global track students opt for an enhanced global curriculum with in-country immersion in a location where English is widely spoken. Language track students choose from three options for in-country language-intensive studies, including French, German or Spanish.
Early learning progresses from core curriculum and international business classes to immersive, in-country experiences that leverage and contextualize your classroom studies.
