MBA News: B-Schools Going Global

Many MBA programs across the country are revamping their curricula to incorporate a global focus into traditional business school studies to better prepare students for an international business environment. According to U.S. News & World Report, technology has been a catalyst for new “global-centric” MBA programs by making the world smaller and more accessible. Babson College’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business is even offering a new course on using technology to manage a global work force, and NYU’s Stern School of Business is integrating technology by making course materials available via the iPad. The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania recently announced that it will place greater emphasis on global business by offering new areas of study, including “Finance and the Global Economy” and “Managing the Global Enterprise.” These globally minded business schools are now doing more than just offering an international program or sending students on global business immersion trips—they are making the global mind-set part of their basic philosophy, and students unwilling to move forward with this global mind-set just might get left behind.
