The Fisher International MBA program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies is characterized by its diverse student body, comprised of 50% international students and 50% women. At the Monterey Institute, Fisher International MBA students find an unmatched faculty and staff, excellent instructional technology and research facilities, an involved administration, and links to internships and job placements around the world.
Our students arrive with strong academic experience, international knowledge and perspective, and a broad range of previous work experience including software engineers, entrepreneurs, linguists, non-profit managers, accountants, former Peace Corps volunteers, and many others.
We consider each student's background and career interests in designing his or her course of study. For example, students with previous academic background in business may complete the Advanced Entry MBA in one year. Students with little or no previous business experience complete the Two Year MBA - the first year focusing on core business skills, the second year on specific areas of interest.
Fisher International MBAs are noted by leading business media to have strong skills necessary to success in international business. All MBA students take three courses in common called the International MBA Core International Organizational Behavior and Global Business Strategyand the capstone International Business Plan. This International MBA Core is the hallmark of a Monterey Institute MBA and distinguishes our alumni from graduates of other programs.
Upon graduation, Fisher International MBAs become entrepreneurs, get involved with start-ups, take government or non-governmental positions, or join the global team of companies operating worldwide.
