Take Your Skills Global
The Goldring Institute of International Business was founded in 1991 to house the research and academic programs of the A.B. Freeman School of Business which were related to international business. Its role is derived from the school's mission to have "a strong emphasis on the global issues facing modern business." The specific objectives of the Goldring Institute have evolved to be twofold:
- to provide Freeman School of Business students the opportunity to learn about the cultural and business challenges and opportunities of the development of the global economy in which they will live and work
- to be a leader in management education in the developing regions of the world through the establishment of academic institutions in these regions and the export of management educational programs.
The programs offered for the Freeman School of Business students include the Global MBA (MBA/Master of Global Management Dual Degree Option) and the Global Leadership Module within the MBA and PMBA programs. Our MBA and MGM programs all require travel and classes abroad; travel programs are optional for PMBA students.
The programs supporting our leadership role in the developing regions include: the faculty development PhD program for Latin American faculty, the Master of Management, Master of Global Management, and International EMBA degree programs with selected schools in Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
