A new Purdue University Global concentration and microcredential in global business will include the university’s first-ever study abroad program. Included in both the degree and microcredential offerings is a one-week program scheduled to take place in March in London.
The four-course MBA/Master of Science in Management and Leadership sequence will begin in September.
“Developing the unique skills necessary to lead in a globalized economy has never been more critical,” said Jeff Buck, Purdue Global vice president and dean of the School of Business and Information Technology. “This program will foster that development and give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into action through our newly designed international field experience.”
Purdue says the program is designed to prepare students to pursue career advancement in global management roles. The program will build knowledge in practical methodologies for the strategic management of people, resources and processes within a global business environment.
The course sequence is global business environment, global management and leadership, global operations, and global strategy.
Purdue says students who already have earned a degree may enroll in the associated global business microcredential.
