Full-time MBA Global Requirement

To complete the MBA, all full-time MBA students must successfully satisfy a global requirement.


This requirement is mandatory for all full-time MBA students. It is separate and distinct from the global management specialization, which is voluntary. To fulfill the global requirement, students must successfully complete one of a number of global academic options available to them.



1 An on-campus (or virtual) global management elective course
2 An international Applied Management Research or Business Creation Option capstone project (this must be preapproved by the CGM office) 
3 A Global Immersion course (including virtual offerings) 

For students who want to do a “deeper dive” and take this requirement further, the Center for Global Management also offers a Specialization in Global Management .
