A Dynamic Learning Experience
Students in the full-time Global MBA program at the Fox School of Business benefit from a challenging academic program that emphasizes real-world experience and team-based learning. The full-time Global MBA program is comprised of several elements which culminate in an experience that places students on the path to success. These elements include:
- Cohort Structure – This team-learning approach allows faculty to coordinate content and course delivery. The effect is a greater integration and coordination of learning outcomes.
- MBA Essentials – Through this required, pre-term orientation, students are provided with a foundation for future coursework as well as training in leadership, team building, business communications, and the case method of learning. Students also begin the process of defining career goals and creating an action plan to ensure successful professional opportunities upon graduation.
- Core Curriculum – The MBA core curriculum includes business foundation courses, advanced managerial perspective courses and the capstone. In addition to the required core curriculum courses, MBA students choose courses that align with their career goals and interests.
- Concentration Courses– Along with their core curriculum, students customize their coursework to create a program that meets their career needs. Concentrations are offered in:
- Global Immersion- Students benefit from a rich itinerary of cultural experiences. Within each global residency (up to two weeks in length per trip), students engage in a rigorous curriculum that combines classroom interaction, tours of key sites of interest or business, visits with prominent companies and executives, and diverse cultural experiences, all of which focus on preparing students for a rewarding global career.
- Speaker Series – This required integrated professional development series exposes MBA students to real-world application of the concepts they are learning and uses corporate panels and top-level speakers to cover a variety of topics.
- Enterprise Management Consulting Practice (EMC) – The EMC Practice is a required, hands-on learning experience involving faculty and students. During the EMC practice, student teams assist firms or divisions with a live consulting project while integrating course work, business experience, and research into highly professional market-entry strategies or business plans.
Required Summer Internship – A non-credit summer internship between the first and second year of the program is required and helps students to prepare for the job market following their MBA program, expand their professional career and gain real-world experience. Exceptions with replacement coursework are handled on a case-by-case basis for students prohibited due to Visa restrictions or other circumstances.
