The GMBA program begins with MBA Essentials, a required month-long comprehensive orientation, that serves as the entrée into the program.

During this time, students also complete Quantitative Methods for Business.
Coursework in the full-time Global MBA Program is typically completed in Alter Hall on Temple University’s Main Campus. Concentration classes take place in the evening.
Students in their first year can anticipate taking a range of courses, the focus of which include financial and managerial accounting, marketing management strategy, financial analysis and business strategy.
The second year of the full-time Global MBA experience builds upon the lessons learned during year one and includes courses that cover risk management, managing business processes, leadership development, ethics, and business law.

With one experience in the 1st year and a second in the 2nd year of study, students will travel to locations like; France, India, Singapore, China and Latin America.
