    Course Summary

    The University of Prince Edward Island’s MBA in Global Leadership is an excellent follow-on from their BBA program, delivered by UPEI’s Faculty of Business over the course of 12 months in three terms. It is designed to provide aspiring international business persons as well as those with some work experience behind them but with an eye towards a faster advance in career prospects.

    You’ll learn the requirements for entering new markets on the global scale, how to work with people from disparate cultures, and how to navigate the complexities of bridging different business environments.  

    By the time you graduate, you’ll have the leadership skills necessary for that environment, the strategic understanding you’ll need to tackle global business challenges, and an understanding of the theories behind the study of modern business. You’ll also gain highly transferrable skills which can be applied to almost any non-business career, such as critical thinking, ethical decision making, professional communication and research.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
