California's Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) has redesigned its MBA program, according to the program webpage.
The program is now called the "Fisher MBA in Global Impact Management," and focuses on how global issues like climate change and globalization are changing businesses.
The program can be completed in either 12 or 20 months. The 20-month option provides additional curriculum in business fundamentals, more electives, and the possibility of going on an international study trip.
Students in either track of the redesigned MBA program will also be able to select one of three focus areas, which include "Resilient Business Management," "Social Enterprise and Finance," and "Corporate Risk Management and Compliance."
The MBA will also include a capstone experience, where students will receive practical experience dealing with real-world business challenges. In this part of the program, students can develop an international business plan, pursue a fieldwork assignment in social venture management, or complete a business consulting project.
To apply for the program, applicants must have a bachelor's degree and either a GMAT or a GRE score. Applicants who apply for the 12-month option must have work experience. Since the program also includes a focus on foreign language communication, proficiency in a foreign language must also be demonstrated. Non-native English speakers must provide evidence of English proficiency, through TOEFL or IELTS scores.
