An 18-month, 48-credit program, the MBA in International Business is taught primarily in online classes to experienced managers and professionals and is supplemented by two separate one-week residencies at our Caribbean university campus in Grenada. The online MBA courses take place in a virtual classroom, which allows real-time interaction between students and professors.
Self-Paced Introductory Coursework: Prior to the initial residency,you can complete your introductory coursework in the areas of accounting, finance, and statistics. Available as short online courses, this preparatory material is meant to provide a strong foundation in the technical tools of business used in later coursework.
Residency in Grenada: Students also complete a pair of one-week, non-consecutive residencies at SGU’s True Blue campus in Grenada. Participants work together in teams, experience Grenada, and build strong relationships during numerous team-building events during the initial residency. Then, during the final residency week, participants present their final project.
Final Action Project: The MBA in International Business requires participants to complete final action projects, either as individuals or in teams. This provides students the opportunity to integrate all their MBA training, knowledge, and skill development while applying it to a business opportunity of personal value and meaning. The final project is primarily developed through individual course assignments throughout the program. Faculty mentors are assigned to provide ongoing guidance and direction.
Class Sessions: Participants take two courses at a time during an eight-week period. Live class sessions typically are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with some additional “face-time” required in different classes.
