Frequently Asked Questions

What are the prerequisites for the Global MBA?
There are no prerequisites for the Global MBA; however, applicants with weak quantitative skills may want to consider taking a pre-calculus or calculus course after being admitted. The Global MBA program also has workshops for new students which will increase the quantitative ability level in preparation for the MBA curriculum.
Is the Global MBA accredited?
Yes. The School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB International is the premier accrediting agency for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting.
When do classes begin?
The program begins for all students in mid-August with the MBA Institute, which provides quantitative review, career workshops, communication & teamwork skill development, and guidance on living in Washington, DC. International students are expected to arrive in early August to attend the International Student Orientation before the start of MBA Institute. Specific dates and a schedule will be announced to new students after the Declaration of Intent, tuition deposit, and enrollment fee have been received.
Can I waive any classes or transfer graduate credit?
Students may waive up to six credits / transfer in up to six credits by submitting a syllabus and transcript for relevant graduate coursework. Students must have earned a grade of "B" or higher in the course, and the course must have been taken within the five years prior to students' enrollment in the Global MBA Program. Students may also take proficiency exams in select subjects prior to the start of the program. Waivers are not granted for undergraduate coursework or undergraduate degrees
What is the teaching methodology?
Courses are highly integrated and taught using the team-based approach. Most assigned work is completed in four-to-five person teams. Depending on the subject, faculty utilize some combination of lectures, case method, project work, simulations, client work, and group papers and presentations. We believe this is the most effective way for students to gain a practical education.
