International MBA Dual-Degree Programs

In addition to our traditional MBA programs, the Moore School collaborates with leading international business schools to create dual-degree programs allowing groups of students to bridge cultural and geographical landscapes and address important contexts and issues in international business. Our current students, future students and the international university partners in this collaboration are vital stakeholders in constructing these important experiences.

Double-Degree Program for Executive International MBA (DIMBA) Taiwan

The program includes a capstone project in strategic management and foundational core courses in quantitative methods, financial and managerial accounting, and global economics. The global functional core portion of the curriculum covers global finance, marketing and supply chain; management of multinational enterprises, and customer relationships and data mining. Finally, the year-long, 48 credit hour program covers raising capital in different international corporate environments, Asian culture, branding and marketing, comparative corporate governance and innovation systems.

In addition to teaching students by following the case method approach, similar to other MBA programs from elite universities overseas, NTNU-USC DIMBA will also taks students out of the classroom to visit well-known corporations abroad, where they experience different types of corporate cultures and operation modes. Students participating in this curriculum also get the opportunity to apply what they have learned in solving real business problems by taking part in international research and industrial research projects.
