The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University will appeal to the internationally minded, with an original Global EMBA providing 'immersion' experiences at Duke's campus and then classrooms in Asia, South America, and Europe. The curriculum is specifically tailored to explore global markets, regulations, and business institutions in some of the world's most important economic regions.
Duke also offers a more traditional full-time US MBA (22 months) and Executive MBA (19 months) alongside specialist masters in health management, business foundations, finance and clinical informatics.
Duke University, founded in Durham (North Carolina) in 1924, is known to many Americans as 'Harvard of the South' with an elite educational reputation and particular standing in medical sciences. Here you'll find the Duke 'daytime' MBAs who study core business modules for punchy 6-week terms followed by a summer internship and then a 2nd year focused entirely on their chosen electives.
To facilitate the best possible learning and growth, the Duke MBA encourages a community "from a myriad of functional, industry and academic backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities, religious beliefs and sexual orientations" and says that "when you step into a Duke MBA classroom, you will be awed by the experiences and perspectives that your classmates possess."
A strong emphasis is placed on working collaboratively with Fuqua classmates and forging helpful connections across the school and with the 16,000 alumni internationally. This network, along with Fuqua's hands-on Career Management Center, will help students to find job opportunities in their chosen industry and region during and after their MBA.
