Start your international business career by gaining a strong understanding of how the world is interconnected through finance, marketing, operations, economics, and strategy. Hult International Business School’s Master of International Business (MIB) degree uses the same experiential learning techniques from its award-winning MBA program to bring these concepts to life.


Who is the Master of International Business program from Hult International Business School for?

For candidates who have recently graduated from university or college, as well as individuals with up to three years of work experience who are interested in fields related to international business.

Where is this degree offered?

You can start your MIB degree in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, or Shanghai. You can rotate to other campuses in Modules D and E.

Global rotation: Study at up to three Hult campuses

Only Hult enables you to combine your studies with immersive learning in up to three world-class cities. Gain an invaluable global perspective by opting to rotate seamlessly to up to two more Hult campus locations during your final two elective modules. There are seven campuses to choose from—Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, New York, and Ashridge (U.K.).

A cutting-edge curriculum combining knowledge, leadership development, and practical experience

In 2014, Hult won the prestigious AMBA Innovation Award for blending core business knowledge with best-in-class techniques from the world’s preeminent corporate leadership development programs into its curriculum. The program develops your leadership skills across areas employers deem critical to success, such as being adaptive, influencing others, and achieving results through collaboration. This innovative approach has now been fully integrated into our MIB degree. You will also gain practical experience through the seven-month Hult Business Challenge, in which you form a team with fellow students to develop a game-changing idea for a real-life business challenge.

Experts in bringing the basics of business to life

Throughout your core studies, Hult takes you out of the classroom to help you learn the basics—strategy, management and finance—through experience. This is achieved in a number of ways: undertaking outdoor activities to help teach teamwork and leadership, competing in complex computer-based simulations and even using non-traditional experts, such as poker players, to help teach you skills such as risk management. By the end of the program, you will have developed a deep-rooted understanding of the fundamental concepts of global business.

Tailor your experience to fit your career goals

The Hult MIB degree is very flexible— specializations allow you to tailor the program to your individual and professional goals. You can focus your final two modules on a specific career or study a broad range of general management topics. There are six specializations to choose from— marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, project management, sustainability, and general management (see page opposite).

Seven global locations

Study at any three of our seven campus locations during your one-year program.

Study in up to three of Hult’s seven campuses over the course of one unforgettable and life-changing year. We run our own programs, meaning you have the freedom to rotate among our campus locations without any interruption to your studies. There are over 200 possible campus rotation combinations.
