Sacramento State, part of the California State University system, announced an international MBA degree program for students in Singapore, in partnership with Aventis School of Management. Aventis has a Singapore campus that hosts other U.S. programs, including the City University of New York’s Baruch College.
The degree, called the IMBA, will offer concentrations in finance, IT management, and international management. Sacramento State faculty will fly to Singapore for four days of intense face-to-face instruction for each required class, with the remainder of the interaction occurring online. It is the school’s first international program venture.
There are seven required classes: managerial accounting, global corporate finance, marketing management, statistical decision-making, information technology management, human resources management for international business, and business law. The electives of finance, international management and IT management specialization include the culminating experience of leadership and change management. The first cohort will feature the international management specialization with the four electives of comparative international management, multinational corporate management, global supply chain management and international project management.
