Wharton's Joseph H. Lauder Institute of Management and International Studies has recently announced plans to launch a new MBA track that aims to prepare future global leaders to solve complex business problems in an increasingly interconnected world.
The program is designed for those who speak a second language, and want to be able to understand the linguistic and cultural challenges in conducting business in that language. The program is 24 months long and includes a summer of study.
Graduates of the program will come away with an MBA from Wharton as well as an MA which, according to a Wharton press release, is "focused on the study of international economics, comparative politics, diplomacy, international law, and cross-cultural negotiations and communications."
The inaugural class begins in May 2013.
For more information, please see the Wharton press release.
Grads of new program will also receive an MA in international studies
