1 RETHINKING THE BOUNDARIES THE DUKE MBA CROSS CONTINENT
2 THE WORLD IS THE BEST PLACE TO LEARN.
3 PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Duke MBA Cross Continent program draws from the same faculty, applies the same rigorous grading standards, and provides the same degree as all Duke MBA programs. However, you will attend eight weeks of residential sessions, with distance learning periods between the residencies, throughout the 17-month program a format that allows you to live and work anywhere in the world. The program begins with the first two-week residency (includes orientation) at Duke University s Durham, NC, campus, followed by eight- to nine-day sessions in locations around the world, and concludes with a two-week residency of electives in Durham. All residencies are mandatory. For each term, you will travel to your residency for intense, faceto-face interactions with Duke faculty and your classmates. This residency period is then followed by seven to 10 weeks of distance education that involves virtual classes and collaborative learning with a globally dispersed team. After the initial Durham residency, your class will travel through global locations for residencies that expose you to four distinct global economies, and then back to the US. At the mid-point of the program, you will change teams, which builds a stronger network throughout your academic experience. Over six terms, you will complete 10 courses that span all functional areas of business and four elective courses that allow you to sharpen your skills in a particular discipline or broaden your knowledge of several functional areas. You will also have the option to customize your MBA with a concentration in Energy and the Environment, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Strategy, Finance, or Marketing; or a certificate in Health Sector Management (additional fees apply). Additionally, multi-term courses, focused on the role of global markets and institutions and the nuances of leadership, culture, and civilization, will span terms one through five. In these courses, assignments may take you out of the classroom in order to gain real-world cultural experience and tools to process the experience against your own cultural profile. As a result, you develop a framework that will enable you to be successful anywhere in the world. These classes demonstrate how region-specific institutions, markets, cultures, and civilizations shape the flow of international commerce.
