An MBA in global management prepares managers to lead effectively in a transnational environment. Participants learn international management skills, which enable them to manage offices and employees located in other countries, develop business opportunities in global markets, and allocate resources worldwide.
The global management curriculum ranges from cultural sensitivity training to supply-chain management. Courses may include: global business, international corporate finance, regional business environments, global operations management, international marketing, and cross-cultural communication.
MBA graduates with a global management specialization offer unique value to companies expanding into international markets. Managers and executives with a traditional business background may lack up-to-date training in this area. Demand is therefore high for managers with an international business specialization.
A global management MBA can lead to careers as varied as global resource supervisor, purchasing agent, global call center manager, and corporate resources manager. Salaries vary widely and depend on your position in the business. Purchasing agents who deal with global markets earn an average median salary of $72,450, and international call center managers earn an average $44,160.
