Global MBA



UofL’s Global MBA reflects the university’s commitment to understanding and helping shape the global economy. This general management MBA focuses on international business and entrepreneurship. It equips students with contemporary management and critical thinking skills, and instills in them an enterprising spirit grounded in solid business practices. Our goal is to develop action-oriented managers with the leadership qualities and global orientation required for success in today’s business environment. Students come from around the globe through UofL’s partner Akademie Würth Business School in Germany. They enter a 45-credit-hour program that takes 13.5 months to complete. Students study at UofL for 4.5 weeks each during two consecutive summers.  They take the remaining hours during the intervening academic year at our partner site.

With the Global MBA, we are increasing the credibility and visibility of the University of Louisville by providing high quality MBA education throughout the world. This includes name recognition, global advocacy of the university, and an opportunity to work with students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
