TWO NEW MBA STREAMS USB is introducing two new MBA streams over and above its generalist MBA stream. The new streams are:
Use the International Study Module to grow a global mind-set All MBA students need to do a compulsory MBA International Study Module (various options) at a foreign business school to enhance their international exposure. The cost of this module is included in the MBA study fees. Gain business knowledge through the Research Assignment Concurrent with the MBA and building on the content of the MBA, students should write a Research Assignment of 50 to 70 pages on a management-related problem. The research assignment serves as an example of how to handle business challenges by following a robust research process. This experience also gives students the ability to make a value judgement on research presented at managerial level in the workplace. Optional: Exchange studies abroad MBA students can choose to complete part of their studies at one of USB’s overseas partner schools. This will enable them to earn credits towards the USB MBA by doing a module or summer school abroad. Exchange studies are optional. Please note that USB reserves the right to modify the contents of subjects and to combine subject matter for better integration of learning areas. This is in the interest of continuous improvement of the curriculum.
