The Boston University One-Year International MBA prepares you for the increasingly competitive, global nature of business.

This program begins with intensive coursework in Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore over the summer. Students complete the remaining MBA coursework in Boston. Students may choose to extend their program beyond 12 months to complete a summer internship.

The program focuses on leveraging the benefits of working on multicultural teams, decision making under pressure and the value of interconnected diverse networks. You will accomplish more in 12 months than most MBA students do in 24 months. In addition, you will form deep lifelong friendships as well as unique talking points for your post MBA job interviews.

Concentrations allow you to align your learning with your professional goals.
