NTU’s Global MBA program emphasizes a rigorous core curriculum designed to provide students from all academic backgrounds a solid foundation in general business education. From this foundation, students may customize their studies through a wide range of available elective courses. In this way, students leave the Global MBA ready to navigate the 21st century business landscape while focusing their education on their individual interests, expertise, and aspirations.
The Curriculum


We recommend a two year plan of study for completion of the Global MBA. However, the timeline is flexible based on individual’s needs. You may squeeze the study in 1 year, or you may finish in 1.5 or 2 years.  If you are part-time students or you would like to join our exchange program, you may have a longer study period for up to 3 or 4 years.
