Live and Learn In Three Countries
Some MBA programs boast international faculty. Others attract a student body from diverse regions. Still others offer students an opportunity to spend a week or more studying abroad. Our MBA program has long featured all of these crucial ways of experiencing the world beyond our borders. But we believe that to prepare managers and leaders for the global marketplace, there is a need for an option with even more significant exposure to a variety of cultural, political and social settings.
That is why we are launching our new Global MBA, bringing exceptional students from China, India and the United States together in a two-year, full-time program. This unique partnership between Tongji University's School of Economics and Management (SEM-Tongji) in Shanghai, China; Xavier School of Management in Jamshedpur, India; and Weatherhead will feature:
- Integrated program design
- Extensive exposure to three varied cultural, economic and political settings
- In-depth experience in three of the world's most important economies
- Interaction with top faculty from all three institutions
- Opportunities for project work in all three countries
- Class and project experience in multinational teams
The Global MBA will allow students to directly experience classrooms and cultures in the United States, China and India. Students will go far beyond a touris's experience of these countries and economies by participating in substantial company-based projects on teams drawn from their cohort group.
Each cohort will be comprised of students from Weatherhead, SEM-Tongji and Xavier School of Management. These students will be taught together in lockstep and mixed in teams for projects. Students will spend one semester at each school before returning to their home school for the final semester.
This level of experiential learning at multiple international locations is a feature that sets our program apart from the rest. The Global MBA is ideal for individuals seeking a top management role, because it addresses the need to engage directly with areas of significant economic growth around the world.
This program will allow students to truly immerse themselves in a culture, and in a new way of doing business. Multinational student teams will engage deeply in special projects for multinational organizations in each location. This is an unparalleled opportunity for experiential learning across cultures and industries.
