UNION — Kean University recently received accreditation in the European Union for their Global MBA program, the first and only college in the U.S to do so.
The three-year accreditation program is operated by the European Foundation for Management Development. Kean first received accreditation for its MBS in Global Management program in February 2012.
The EFMD is internationally known as an accreditation body of quality in management education for over 500 business schools. Adopting accreditation programs make it evident that students from schools like Kean are more likely prepared to enter the professional world because they meet higher standards than the average collegiate.
A Business Administration in Global Management MBA grants students the opportunity to travel abroad for courses and internships that provides extensive experience. Unlike any other curriculum, the MBA- enables students to pursue business internships abroad; global consulting projects and international business study tours to achieve the “Global Experience” the MBA in Global Management expects.
In addition, students must learn a second language by graduation time. This graduation requirement is separate from the MBA requisites and help students become business savvy in other countries by enabling them to communicate with target business markets. Students take an international accredited language test as a part of the second language requirement.
Some of the courses included in the program are Ethical and Legal Issues in Operating Globally, Management in Labor Relations in the Global Environment and Global Business. The courses are coordinated so that students receive hands on experience in the business world in other countries. Kean has established this program to fully prepare its students for success in the business world.
