The Darla Moore School of Business IMBA: What You Need To Know
The International Master of Business Administration (IMBA) program at the Darla Moore School of Business offers an international business education that prepares students for a global environment. Global issues and experience permeate the program’s core classes and the program is designed to expose students to international business issues from the first day of class.
Step one of the program is the lock-step business core where the purpose is to build a fundamental knowledge base in the functional areas of business. Students may also begin elective work and select a specialty. Step two involves the selection of intensive language study or global coursework. Step three is an internship and final international business coursework along with electives.
Each student in the International MBA program has the opportunity to develop competency in a second language and will complete a rigorous program of graduate business study, develop an understanding of another culture and business environment, and integrate academic course work through the experience of an extensive internship. Students build on core classes and the IMI module by working either in the US – in many cases securing a full time offer as an outcome of the internship – or in their immersion location gaining real-world work experience that adds value to the job placement and career development process.
