Program Description

People in all areas of business face complex issues and tasks that arise from the increasingly global nature of business. Executives need to be adept at recognizing global business complexities, and at adapting their companies' strategies, marketing and management to different cultures, institutions, economic conditions and political situations.

The Central European program puts MBA and MS students in the midst of major global business challenges: the ongoing development of the European Union, the opportunities and difficulties facing emerging market economies due to the recent financial crisis, and the continuing transitions of the business world in the once centrally-planned economies of the region. The program brings graduate students face-to-face with managers, scholars, government experts, and other key decision-makers in Central Europe who are both leading and adapting to ongoing change in the business world.

The program includes teaching by faculty from the University of Delaware plus universities such as Central European University (Hungary), Corvinus University (Hungary), the University of Economics (Czech Republic), and/or the Vienna University of Economics and Business (Austria). The program also includes visits to business in the region, and attention to the cultural, political, and historic context in the region's economies.

Cities to be visited include Prague (Czech Republic), Budapest (Hungary), and Vienna (Austria).

The Program Fee includes housing, academic and cultural excursions, guest speakers and visits to multiple companies and international medical insurance. Students will be housed in business class hotels in city centers, including breakfast most days, along with 1-2 group dinners. Students are responsible for the remainder of their meals.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Europe, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Prague. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

International UD graduate students are welcome to apply. See the faculty director's website for specific visa instructions. Also note that full-time international MBA and MS students (visa holders) pay a different tuition rate. International MBA tuition $1,250 per credit for winter 2017, totaling $7,500. International MS tuition is $1,350 per credit for winter 2017, totaling $8,100.
