The University of Missouri–St. Louis’ International MBA program provides immersive training in international business to students from around the globe with partner institutions in six countries.

MBA China and Manager Magazine recently recognized the partnership between UMSL’s College of Business Administration and Nanjing University among the top 10 Best Chinese-Foreign Cooperative MBA Programs. The UMSL-Nanjing program ranked fifth on the list.

“To be ranked as one of the top five dual degree programs is a significant honor,” said Joseph Rottman, the associate dean for graduate and international programs. “The China MBA market is incredibly competitive and this ranking shows the high quality of our IMBA program and how impactful our partnership with Nanjing University has been for both institutions.”

The recognition bolsters the College of Business Administration’s already strong reputation in international business. U.S. News & World Report has ranked UMSL’s undergraduate international business program among the top 25 in the United States for 17 consecutive years.

Students in the International MBA program spend one year abroad, one year at home and complete an international internship en route to earning their degrees.

This combination of domestic and international coursework and the internship prepare both UMSL and NJU students for careers in many fields.

Students improve their international mindset and technical and managerial skills. The knowledge they gain while pursuing their degree leaves them well suited to compete and succeed in an increasingly complex global market.

UMSL has also partnered with universities in Taiwan and South Korea to offer the International MBA, giving students options to study how business operates around the world.

More than 150 American and Chinese students have been transformed by the innovative program between UMSL and Nanjing over the past 15 years.
