A full-time program emphasizing strong quantitative research
methods and international business core sequences, the curriculum also offers
opportunities for secondary specializations in accounting, finance, information
systems, management, and marketing. Within the context of these specializations,
students are provided a strong base in theoretical knowledge and state of the
art methodological skills. Course work is divided between advanced methods and
substantive international business core and specialization sequences.
The next cohort begins in Fall 2013. We will not be accepting students pursuing the Accounting Specialization in the 2013 cohort due to space limitations.
