Global Business

Business has no boundaries. The Georgia Tech Scheller Executive MBA program's Global Business specialization teaches you to think strategically and contribute to companies that work across borders and around the world.

The Global Business (GB) specialization starts with the EMBA program's core MBA coursework, then transitions to a specialized curriculum focusing on the dynamics of global competition and strategies for building a global competitive advantage. You'll learn about global workforce management, global supply chain, international finance, and product strategies for global markets.

Global Business students can take an elective course during the summer and final fall semesters. Elective offerings are available in topics like cybersecurity, fintech, product management, tech strategy, and more.
