Today’s corporate executives oversee workers on multiple continents, and supply chains stretch that from the U.S. to Asia and back to your doorstep. They compete for market-share around the world, in hot competition with foreign rivals.

In our global management program, you will learn the business strategy and cultural awareness you'll need to flourish in our interconnected world. See the big picture of the global flow of goods and currency, focus on a particular region or country by learning a language, and explore your role as a global actor.

Globalization requires managers to negotiate across cultures, enter new markets, coordinate sourcing relationships, and cope with intense competitive pressures. Through the global management program, students learn about the complex flows of goods and capital and the differences of location and politics that influence global business strategy in an uncertain world. To gain global perspective, students in this program become proficient in another language and study the political and economic forces shaping the international system. Many students also study abroad and have the opportunity to prepare for and reflect on those experiences in their global management courses.

Our Philosophy

We are all scholars here.  We have a duty to our profession, our society, and our students to engage in scholarship as a life-long search for new answers to intellectually vital questions. By our example as scholars, we teach our students the importance of an abiding curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

Students come first. We base every decision on what is best for our students, and though reasonable people disagree about what is "best", we do not accept decisions premised on any lesser standard.

The right to be authentic. We believe in allowing each faculty member the autonomy to express their uniqueness as teachers, scholars, and community members. The interplay among these diverse perspectives, rather than any one best model of pedagogy or scholarship, promotes learning, passion, and innovation.

Truly professional education. We are committed to our students' professional development. We define "professional" broadly to include technical competence, intellectual depth, and moral development. The truly professional manager is not constrained by narrow conventions but understands organizations, has the skills and creativity to lead them, and thinks deeply and responsibly about their impact on society.

Leave room for community.  Even in our autonomy, we are responsible to each other, to help each other achieve our professional goals and to work together in common cause. We value the fundamental trust and easy collegiality that we share.
