PSU Launches Online MBA with Certificate in International Business

May 27th, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.- Plymouth State University is launching an innovative online MBA degree program this fall in conjunction with the Babes-Bolyai University (UBB) in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, that will offer students a unique international educational experience.

The online MBA with a certificate in International Business offers students worldwide the opportunity to participate in a rich, multi-cultural online learning community at a fraction of the cost of many graduate-level study abroad programs. The degree program provides a substantial foundation for a career in a local or multi-national enterprise. It is slated to begin this fall with a class of 20 American and international students.

“This program allows students located anywhere in the world the opportunity to gain a truly global perspective in their studies,” said Dr. Trent Boggess, chair of the PSU business department. “The program draws upon the real-world experience of PSU’s and UBB’s professors to provide a solid foundation in international issues.”

Designed for aspiring professionals in management or staff positions in businesses and public institutions, successful graduates will be well prepared to assume senior-level management positions in organizations engaged in international business. This includes positions in finance, sales, marketing, operations management, supply chain management, human resources, and product management.</P.

Taught entirely in English, the degree is one of the few Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)–accredited MBA programs that reach across borders without the complications and expense of international travel.

Professors from both PSU and UBB will deliver courses throughout the two-year program, including global economics, international business, managing organizational behavior and marketing techniques.

The diverse backgrounds and experiences of both professors and students will foster productive and lasting international learning exchanges.
