Jack Welch College of Business, Sacred Heart University - Luxembourg - Global MBA
Sacred Heart University’s Jack Welch College of Business (main campus in Fairfield, CT) has been in Luxembourg for more than two decades offering graduate level programs tailored to the needs of working professionals. Since 2012, we also offer a full-time MBA with Internship program for students from abroad and Luxembourg.
The teaching staff are accomplished scholars and experienced business executives coming from the US main campus and Luxembourg. SHU is closely linked with the business community of Luxembourg which is also reflected in our active Board of Regents.
MBA with Internship (Full Time)
The Jack Welch MBA with Internship is designed for young graduates and professionals from abroad and Luxembourg. This program eases the entry of students without work experience into the professional life and facilitates young professionals to switch career. In 16 months, students are able to earn an MBA degree and gain valuable work experience while completing an internship at a top company in Luxembourg.
The paid, full-time internship takes place at companies including ArcelorMittal, BBH, Delphi Automotive Systems, PwC, SES (satellite), UBS, Vodafone. The university and the student work together to find the best match between the student’s objectives and the employer’s expectation. An individual coaching program also supports this process.
Students have the option to finish the last four months of the program in the US on Sacred Heart University’s main campus in Fairfield,CT, an hour north of New York City.
Non EU/EEA students graduating with an MBA can obtain a work permit in Luxembourg for another two-year period under certain conditions provided that the salaried activity is related to the academic training.
The Jack Welch Part Time MBA program is designed for working professionals in Luxembourg who aspire to leadership positions in tomorrow’s global economy.
Students can start the program anytime. The course schedule will be designed individually so that students can study at their own pace (18 months up to six years).
Entering students will be assessed to measure management skills, communication skills and content knowledge to help determine their individual curriculum.
Classes take place in the evening and therefore do not disturb the student’s working life.
The geography of Luxembourg has caused, by necessity, a unique blend of cultures. Many students choose Luxembourg for its easy access to Paris (3 hours), Brussels (2 hours) and Frankfurt (21/2 hours). The lifestyle allows taking time between courses to travel and network, and just enjoy the company of new friends.
Luxembourg may be famous for luxury goods, fine food, and excellent public administration, but once you visit, you will find the real attributes that lure SHU MBA students from around the world. The country is one of the richest and safest global destinations.
The international companies contact the established reputation and engaged alumni open doors for new SHU MBA students for the future.
Positioned in capital city of Luxembourg, SHU is situated in the modern area of Kirchberg.
The university also provides accommodation facilities for international students.
The residence is walking distance from the university and easy accessible with public transport.
