Mourad Dakhli, MIB Program Director

The Master of International Business program (MIB) in the Institute of International Business is offered in a ten-course, one-year format. Every course prepares current and aspiring managers to branch out into the international aspects of business, including navigating the legal landscape of global business, understanding business in emerging markets, developing cross-cultural skills, strategizing and negotiating in worldwide markets and analyzing global business problems in management, marketing and global supply chain.

The MIB provides concrete experience for students including simulations, case studies, research and analysis, and cross-cultural virtual teaming. In the Field Study team-based project, students work with executives of a company on one of their global challenges. Projects have included market assessments, export channel identification, entry mode selection, and expansion of born global firms from Europe to the U.S. Students also interact with executives who are guest speakers in class, and during company visits around Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
