MBA International Business

Combine a UD MBA with a concentration in international business and prepare to conduct business effectively in a global business environment. You will expand your business knowledge while building an international network of friends and colleagues.

Many of our graduates are international students who return home with first-hand knowledge and skills in conducting business in two countries and a keen awareness of U.S. customs and traditions. Other graduates are U.S. citizens interested in global business and helping organizations to expand into overseas markets.

An experience abroad is an important component of your studies in international business. Study abroad programs for graduate students are designed to fit into part-time student work schedules and are shorter than the 5-week or semester-long undergraduate experiences.


You can complete the MBA with international business concentration on campus or online. You can also take several online courses while enrolled in the on-campus program.
