The Global MBA degree is offered in this location:
The Global MBA provides a unique mix of academic courses, professional contacts and personal development experiences. It also helps to develop expertise in international business practices, and enhance competency in decision-making and cross-cultural communication and negotiations. The program is committed to teaching major competencies in leadership, ethics and complex business skills required for gaining a sustainable competitive advantage in a global business environment. The Global MBA is a case study based program that lays the foundation for the business residency abroad.
The business residency abroad is one of the core courses in the program. The business residency allows students to compare concepts of global supply chain, business negotiations, managerial decision making and ethics with implementation in a foreign company. It prepares students to be efficient and competitive in the global market. The residency adds value to the Global Portfolio our students develop while pursuing the Global MBA degree and is supervised by the Graduate school faculty.
The Global MBA is offered as a 30 or 36 credit hour program in Wichita and online. Please see the brochure for details, or call or email our Admissions Office.
Global MBA Schedule
Classes meet one night per week, usually from 6 to 10 p.m. for 24 months.
Short-term Study Abroad Experience
Students enrolled in the Global MBA begin working on their Special Project MGMT 691 early in the program. During the last course in the program, students will participate in a short-term study abroad experience traveling to a foreign country for 5-7 days as a group to experience working in a practical business environment at the international level. Supervised by the program director and a faculty member, the study abroad experience presents a valuable opportunity to benchmark results of student academic research against a real life global business environment. The Special Project allows students to compare concepts of global supply chain, business negotiations, managerial decision making, ethics, and many others learned in the master's program, with their implementation in a foreign company thus preparing students to be efficient and competitive in the global market.
