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.

Chinese-Taught Classes


Students may elect to take a maximum of six credits of Chinese-taught classes to satisfy the Global MBA degree requirements. These classes must be at the Master’s or Graduate level (i.e., the courses with the “M” or “U” codes) and offered by the NTU College of Management. Courses offered by the EMBA Program and EiMBA program are excluded from this option.


Chinese Language Courses


For international students, Chinese language courses for all skill levels are offered, free of charge, for up to one year through NTU’s Office of International Affairs. Although these courses are taken for credit and will appear on students’ transcripts, they do not count towards the Global MBA graduation requirement.
