Master of Business Administration Concentration in Global Strategy and Leadership

Drawing on a variety of cross-disciplinary courses, including strategy, organizational behaviour, entrepreneurship and international business, this concentration provides students with an integrated perspective on leading business issues. Students are prepared for the challenges posed by a globalizing marketplace and develop the skills valued by employers in the consulting, business development, project management, and related fields. Among the issues covered are how to take a firm international, how to manage a multicultural workforce, how to launch a new venture, and how to promote sustainable development.

Students must complete a minimum of two required and three complementary courses. Recommended courses do not count towards the concentration but do count as electives and are suggested depending on career goals.
