You've got the smarts. And the drive. Now all you need is one more thing to launch your career. An MBA with an international focus (IMBA) from the Fogelman College of Business will get you noticed by all the top global corporations. And after they take notice, you'll be doing what you love in a challenging international business environment.

Business firms are increasingly seeking managerial talent with the skills to assess global trends and build global strategies. The International MBA experience is for students who look beyond traditional educational boundaries. It is 'cutting edge' in both purpose and substance. In short, an International MBA will help you develop the business competencies, cultural skills, and global mind-set essential for success in your global endeavors. Students in the International MBA Program are given the opportunity to strengthen foreign language skills, expand cultural understanding, and to gain hands-on working experience through study abroad and overseas internship opportunities.  Such experiences are unique to a limited number of graduate programs across the nation.

The IMBA Program is tailored to assist students in meeting their goal of acquiring knowledge of international business, even if they do not have a traditional business background or a second language. The Program is open to graduates of business, foreign language, liberal arts, and other four-year bachelor’s degree programs.

The IMBA is a full time, 21 month program (including one summer session).  Students earn 51 graduate credit hours upon graduation.  Electives and expanded overseas experiences are available based on student interest.

Affidavit of Support and Financial Statement. International applicants should be sure to complete the "Application for International Graduate Admission" portion andAffidavit of Support and Financial Statement form and return it by mail to Susan Cohn, Office of International Programs, University of Memphis, 102 Brister Hall, Memphis, TN 38152-3520.

Health Insurance: In the United States, health care costs are extremely expensive. International Students are often surprised by how amazingly high a doctor’s bill can be, for what seems to be a very simple treatment. Also, some students may be from countries where healthcare costs are paid by the government, or where there are special rates for students. This is not the case in the U.S. – here, F-1 visa students must pay for their own health care costs. To assist with part of those costs, F-1 visa students attending Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) schools are required to have Tennessee Board of Regents-approved health insurance, before each semester of registration. This is not a University policy; it is a STATEWIDE policy for all schools under the supervision of the Tennessee Board of Regents. This insurance is in place to provide partial coverage for most injuries or illnesses suffered while students are enrolled. It is not meant to be a full-coverage healthcare plan; it is not a complete system of care. It is very useful for reducing the cost of most treatments that the average student may incur during their time in school. For details on the plan, what it covers, what it does not cover, and how to file a claim, please check the Official Insurance Company Website:https://www.pearceandpearce.com/PearceSite/Default.asp. For more information on the Tennessee Board of Regents, the supervisory board that requires you to purchase this insurance: http://www.tbr.edu/ or contact the policy-makers directly: phone: (615) 366-4400 fax: (615) 366-4464; Tennessee Board of Regents, 1415 Murfreesboro Road, Suite 350, Nashville, TN 37217.
