Dual International Master's Program

You can earn your Southeast Missouri State University M.B.A. degree plus a M.A.I.B.E. (Masters of Arts in International Business and Economics) from the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, Germany. And you can complete both in as little as 2 years.

A similar program is available at the University of Applied Sciences, Aachen.

COURSEWORK IS IN ENGLISH - no German language skills are required!

Tuition waiver scholarships are available for the German coursework, and you can spend as little as one semester in Germany and meet the residency requirements, although 2 semesters in Germany is recommended.

Think what completion of two graduate degrees will do for your resume. Your geographic job barriers will expand beyond the U.S.
