MBA Program in International Business
Special Features of the Program
The College of Management’s IBMBA is an international MBA program with a 1:1 ratio of domestic to international students from all over the world. The program is taught entirely in English and has international faculty from Sweden, Korea, France and the United Kingdom, allowing students to be exposed to an internationalized MBA course. Every IBMBA student must apply for an overseas exchange study program. During their exchange, IB students only need to pay National Sun Yat-sen University tuition, which is usually significantly lower than the high tuition fees of most universities abroad. IB students can also participate in a dual degree program, which offers the opportunity to earn both domestic and foreign degrees within two years. In addition, the program offers close industry-academia collaboration opportunities, such as the Seminar in Business Management, where industry experts are invited to come to campus every week to share their practical experience and teach students how to solve practical problems.
The International Business MBA program at National Sun Yat-sen University was ranked in the top 100 universities by the FT Masters in Management Ranking (MiM) for the second time in 2021, jumping two places from last year to 83rd.
Minimum Program Credits: 39 Credits
Given that the goal of the IBMBA program is to develop international leaders, all courses are taught in English. A minimum of 39 credits are required for graduation. There are two required courses and three foundational courses, as well as core courses and elective courses to build students’ professional competencies in business administration. During the course of study, domestic students are required to study abroad for a semester to take management-related professional courses (6-9 credits). Students will receive their degree after completing a total of 13 courses (39 credits), writing a master’s thesis in English, and passing an oral examination on their thesis.
