Master of Business Administration - Global Business

Upper Iowa University



The Upper Iowa University Master in Business Administration degree program provides graduates with current theories, concepts and learning models necessary to assume leadership roles in their organization. Skill and competence in specific business areas are developed through individual and group assignments that combine theory with practical examples. Students work both individually and interact as members of problem solving teams to apply relevant theories to practical case study situations. The program provides a balance of quantitative and qualitative studies to strengthen contemporary managerial skills.

Students in the MBA program with an emphasis on Global Business are expected to demonstrate mastery of the knowledge and skills needed for successful competition in the global environment. The emphasis expands on the domestic viewpoint covered in undergraduate foundational and MBA core courses by exploring the challenges faced by organizations competing in the global economy.

Students will explore current business issues in a global economic context including the effect of culture on the conduct of business and business ethics, how firms operate in the global environment, the effect of the global environment and competition on business strategy, how firms market in the global environment, the financial operations of international and global enterprises, supply chain and logistics issues faced by global competitors, and the legal environment of global competition.

Students will complete a research project involving a substantive issue relevant to global business and of interest to the student. Students will use this project to demonstrate competency and mastery of the various fields of study covered in the program.
