Saint Louis University Master of International Business Launches New Format for Fall 2014

ST. LOUIS - The John Cook School of Business Master of International Business is launching a new format for fall 2014. The 21- month schedule with new, blended learning formats combines in-class meetings one Saturday each month with virtual coursework: One class on campus is required each month and the second class is virtually delivered with the option to attend on campus.

Students of the executive format Master of International Business (EMIB) benefit from the cohort group setting and the intensive weekend format each semester with a strong team emphasis. Additionally, there are extensive networking opportunities through alumni events, guest speakers and the Cook School’s long-standing connections with regionally-based, global companies.

For the last decade, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the SLU international business graduate program in the top 20.

“Professionally graduating from EMIB has allowed me to develop and pursue higher career opportunities within my company on a global level,” said Andy Quirin, EMIB Class of 2011 and a professional at Monsanto. “On a personal level, graduating from EMIB has given me a more well-rounded global knowledge and perspective in both business and culture.”

 “Our EMIB program is designed for working managers who prefer to attend school on Saturdays,” said Seung H. Kim, Ph.D., director of the Boeing Institute of International Business. “The program combines class sessions and virtual distance learning experiences to deliver a high quality degree, with the flexibility professionals require.”

Each month, prospective students are invited to one of the EMIB Info Sessions or webinars to learn more about the program, hear from alumni and faculty. For more information and to register for an upcoming date, visit emib.slu.edu or call 314-977-3839.
