Earn an MBA from the top-ranked business school in international business while studying at NTNU

The NTNU-USC DIMBA program is provided as a collaborative project between the University of South Carolina (USC), which has the most prestigious IMBA program in the U.S., and National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), which possesses a wealth of resources in the areas of education, arts, humanities, music, sports, and leisure. DIMBA is partnered with the Executive IMBA at DMSB. The DMSB is ranked #1 in International Business. You will be studying in Taiwan and the U.S. with leading professionals from all over the world, to acquire an unmatched set of management skills while also becoming more innovative and internationally-minded in your management thinking.

Visit overseas corporations and study abroad

In addition to teaching students by following the case method approach, similar to other MBA programs from elite universities overseas, NTNU-USC DIMBA will also take you out of the classrooms to visit well-known corporations abroad; where you will get to experience different types of corporate culture and operation modes. Students participating in this curriculum will also get the opportunity to apply what they have learned in solving real business problems by taking part in international research and industrial research projects.

Efficient learning - Double the results in half the time

Traditional MBA degrees usually require a minimum of two years of full-time study. For established professionals who possess the academic potential needed to earn an MBA, but not enough time to commit to the program, this requirement can be quite discouraging. EMBA programs offers a choice to combine postgraduate studies with one's career, but most of these programs are narrow in scope and cannot help students expand their international views. The NTNU-USC DIMBA program offers an alternative approach to earn an MBA. You can now earn your degree more efficiently and complete your studies with a more international approach. By attending classes during weekday evenings and all day on weekends, you can complete your graduation requirements (48-credit curriculum and thesis) in just one year and earn MBA degrees from both NTNU and USC.

Acquire a qualification that will make you stand out from the crowd, and add value in your future career

Curriculum of the NTNU-USC DIMBA program includes the following features: Introduction to business (Doing business in Asia), foundation courses, global management core courses, Asian business core courses, and Capstone (strategic management).In addition to general introduction and foundation courses on business management, the program focuses on training students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in international business management. With the TPP and RCEP negotiations currently in progress, Taiwan plays a pivotal role in the economic development and integration in Asia; therefore, the market is in need of talents with specific knowledge in this area. On the other hand, the Asian business core courses emphasize the cultural differences between Asia and the West. Through close analysis of different case studies, students will learn in-depth knowledge about Asia's role in the globalization of production and market. In the latter part of the program, students will receive capstone (strategic management) training, where they can apply what they have learned from classrooms in real life situations.
