The MBA/MA program is a joint arrangement between Darden School of Business Administration and the East Asia Center. It enables students to combine the MA program described above with Darden's excellent MBA program, including an internship in East Asia.
Students enrolled in the joint MBA/MA program, a three year program, will normally spend the first full academic year in the program taking courses in the Darden School, and will not enroll in East Asian studies courses in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences until the following fall. When necessary, an intensive nine-week language training course is taken during the following summer.
The second year incorporates both MA and MBA courses, including more language training. A six-month research assignment in an Asian location follows the second year. These student projects are approved by the University and supported, in part, by Asian companies or Asian affiliates of multinational companies. For their sixth semester, students return to the University to complete the degree requirements, which include a Master's thesis.
There are usually 1-3 new students each year in the MBA/MA program, and they are considered a regular part of the student body in both programs.
