1 Year International MBA Program

Ashland’s 1 Year International MBA allows students to continue to work full-time with Saturday-only classes at their state-of-the-art Cleveland MBA Center. This unique MBA program includes in the tuition not one, but two separate international study tours. The tours are designed to help students expand their perspective on world affairs, in both business and lifestyle. Throughout each study tour, students visit world-leading companies, meet with executives, and participate in immersive cultural events. Previous tours visited Prague, Lisbon, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Israel, Tallinn, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Manchester, Paris, Barcelona, and more. The benefits of students going on one tour towards the beginning of the program and one towards the end are that students experience a more comprehensive understanding of how their education can be applied to business.

Start classes May 11th, 2019 and graduate May 2020. Learn more.

"Any element of business that students and executives learn about and deal with is international by nature," Dr. Elad Granot, Dean of Ashland University’s Dauch College of Business and Economics explained. "There is a lot to be said about reading and discussing it in the classroom, but nothing compares to going and experiencing it firsthand.”
