The Robinson College of Business offers the Global Partners MBA in association with IAE de Paris, the Sorbonne Graduate Business School, and the COPPEAD Graduate School of Business at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The highlights of the program are as follows:

  • The Global Partners MBA is a living classroom: It is a full-time, 14-month, dual degree program delivered across four-continents.
  • Students experience an in-depth, global immersion experience through extended residency stays in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.
  • Students see and hear first hand what’s happening in the real word as they interact with corporate and government leaders in each locale, including extended company visits during the Asian residency, Washington DC, and Brussels.
  • Students gain a 360 degree cross-cultural perspective.
  • Courses are integrated across the partner schools, providing students with a truly global perspective.
  • Commercial Diplomacy and Leadership are program themes. Commercial Diplomacy focuses on the relationship between the public and private sector. They develop an in-depth understanding of the regulatory environment and legal issues as they compare and contrast across four countries and four trading blocks. Students spend time in Washington D.C. at the outset of the program and observe first-hand the American approach to public affairs. This experience builds over the course of the program with key visits such as to the European Union Directorate in Brussels, and other firms and agencies in all program locations.
  • Students learn the latest leadership principles and practices. It begins with a personal assessment of one’s leadership style, including strengths and areas of potential derailment.
  • Internship/Field Study: The internship takes place at the end of the program for approximately 16 weeks. It is the culmination of the classroom and program experiences and can take place anywhere in the world. During this period, students complete a research project that aligns with their internship assignment.
