About the MBA with a Global Perspective Program
MBA students enter as part of a team-based cohort and take all their courses with the cohort. This approach builds business skills in a team environment in which students build relationships and networks with professionals from different industries and different parts of the world. Students take one course at a time, in an accelerated seven-week course period, a model that is particularly valued by working professionals. The program can normally be completed in a 19 to 22 month period.
Arcadia's MBA is a leadership development program which enables students to:
- Analyze emerging global trends affecting business today.
- Collaborate across borders to utilize resources successfully on a global basis to achieve organizational goals.
- Apply technology to improve areas such as management information, communication and productivity.
- Improve skills associated with data gathering, analysis and evaluation in order to devise and implement more effective strategic plans.
- Lead organizations in achieving their goals and objectives through effective delegating, team-building, and motivating practices.
- Integrate cultural awareness and diversity in implementing ethical decisions.
Students complete two one-week international travel experiences. Comparing and contrasting the two experiences takes place in the Global Strategic Management capstone course (BA695) at the end of the program.
Students also may also choose to select a business area of concentration within the MBA with a Global Perspective. These areas include Entrepreneurship, Finance and Leadership. Students who pursue an area of concentration complete a 36-45 -credit degree program that includes three additional courses (9 credits) in the chosen business area concentration. The concentration courses are offered in a fully online seven-week accelerated format and can be taken concurrently with the students’ planned program.
