Global One-Year MBA

Hult International Business School
USA, United Kingdom, UAE

Simply choose a home campus to complete your core coursework, and then spend up to three months specializing at two others.

A curriculum based on current business issues
Our professors come from 37 countries and have taught on every continent. But what truly sets them apart is their real-world experience. Everything you learn is backed by examples from their collective experience as corporate executives, business owners, inventors, and entrepreneurs. There's probably no greater testimony to the quality of Hult's highly practical MBA curriculum than the fact that hundreds of multinational companies turn to Hult's Ashridge Executive Education programs for consulting, management training, and leadership development. This means we can take current business needs and integrate it into our MBA curriculum so that you get the most relevant business education available.

Become a well-rounded professional in one year
Our global curriculum simultaneously develops your core business knowledge and leadership skills, then forces you to put everything you've learned to the test with real-world practice, so that you're job-ready from day one.

Bringing learning to life
Since we all learn best by doing, your professors will periodically take you out of the classroom to help bring core subjects to life. We have students work through difficult work situations by role-playing with professional actors, use computer-based models to market and sell products, and organize outdoor activities to learn teamwork and leadership skills.

Your program culminates in a seven-month project in which you compete against teams of students to devise a game-changing idea that solves an existing problem for a major corporation, or create the business plan for a startup.

Customize your MBA
Hult offers the following six MBA specializations: Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Project Management, Sustainability, and General Management. These specializations mean you can tailor the program's content to meet your individual and professional goals. During the final two modules, you can choose elective classes relevant to a specific career or industry, or you can study a broad range of general management topics.
