See what students and alumni have to say about their Global MBA program:
“We developed the skills to lead teams virtually in a global network. We were working with people from different cultures and different backgrounds. One of the biggest benefits for me was actually learning from the people I was working with on projects—learning how they think, and their approach to solving problems. There’s a perception of online learning that it’s maybe not as effective as traditional learning, but this course broke down those barriers.”

“I love the flexibility and accessibility. When I started the program, I was working in a full-time role as an Associate Director of Business Management at a financial services company. I was also pregnant and had a demanding preschooler at home to look after. Online learning made it possible for me to continue my education. I was able to learn on my own time. The program also has a thriving Slack community and local meetups. While I initially thought I may not have many networking opportunities, I was pleasantly surprised by the rich interaction made possible by digital tools.”
– Nandita Carvalho, Global MBA student, fintech director, and working parent
