Multinational Management

The purpose of the multinational management major is to prepare MBAs for managerial, financial and consulting positions in which a sophisticated understanding of the multinational firm, the international competitive environment, and the cross-national political and social aspects of business is required. The major consists of courses on multinational management complemented by functional electives in the areas of finance, marketing, accounting, legal studies, public policy, real estate or healthcare management.
