A Global EMBA Degree for Today’s Global Economy

The “globalization” of business demands new kinds of leadership skills and richer multicultural perspectives. It also demands a different kind of executive MBA training.

George Mason’s Global EMBA degree focuses on providing real-world skills and a broader world view for mid-career and senior business professionals. The Global Executive MBA program is designed to prepare today’s executives for the new competitive realities of doing business.

Not only do students expand their knowledge of business fundamentals and gain core management tools, but they will also gain an essential global perspective by participating in an invaluable international residency program. In this intensive global residency session, you’ll study contemporary international business issues and work in teams to craft solutions to address specific global business challenges.
