Program description

A partnership of four leading universities: IESA - ITAM - Tulane - UniAndes

The Global MBA is a special curriculum available to Freeman MBA students who seek to broaden their international business education and experience and aspire to global business leadership positions in the Americas. This is a graduate program which provides:

  • a regional focus on managing business throughout the Americas;
  • a global perspective through travel and selected real business cases focused on strategy in the major business regions of the world;
  • an international leadership and team building challenge through teamwork in a unique international cohort

The program is a joint-venture of four prestigious business schools: ITAM, Mexio City, Mexico; IESA, Caracas, Venezuela; Universidad de los Andes, Bogota, Colombia, and; Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.. The Freeman MBA student may use this option to accelerate their MBA program to three semesters or to earn a dual degree, MBA/Master of Global Management.

Freeman MBA students pursuing the Global MBA option enroll in a special international module with a cohort of students from ITAM, IESA, and UniAndes. The module is comprised of six 3-hour courses offered in six different countries. These courses focus on international leadership, teambuilding, and global business strategy.

A team-based international marketing and enterprise valuation (Burkenroad Reports for Latin America) project will be executed over the duration of the module.

The international module is offered off of the normal academic calendar to accommodate travel and accelerated graduate study. Students travel in an international cohort for experiential learning and graduate study in the US, Mexico, Colombia or Venezuela, France, China, and Brazil.

The international module will be taught by Tulane faculty and the faculty of partner schools when visiting the partner school countries.
