U.Va. starts new MBA for Executives global program
- September 17, 2010
The University of Virginia Darden School of Business is launching an executive MBA program designed specifically for executives interested in international business.
“The curriculum we created is for people who want to take their career abroad or people who already work in a cross-cultural platform,” says Peter Rodriguez, associate dean for international affairs and director of the Center for Global Initiatives at Darden.
The MBA for Executives Global (GEMBA) is designed for working business executives. The program will include six, in-person sessions held around the world. The first and last sessions will be in the U.S. The other four modules will include experiential learning in two-week international residencies, in places such as India and China. The students will also take online classes.
The 20-month program is designed for executives who have had at least 10 years of working experience, including significant management experience. The program will start in Fall 2011 and will include about 40 executives. Tuition for the program has not been finalized.
