A global view of international business

As the world’s economies continue to intertwine, corporations and international enterprises demand global managers who understand how organizations interact within sociocultural and political environments. Business professionals who understand the role of government in international relations and global commerce will have a clear advantage. The Darla Moore School of Business has created the Master of International Business (MIB) program and the MIB Double Degree program to meet this growing need. Check out our newest brochure.

Why a Moore School MIB?

  • Top-ranked public university in international business category for 23 consecutive years in the survey of "America's Best Graduate Schools" - U.S.News & World Report
  • No. 3 for "international experience" among all graduate business schools globally - Financial Times

The Moore School is an internationally recognized leader in international business education. The school has joined forces with two other key players on the international education stage: political science and law. It's not just about business—it's about public vs. private, politics vs. religion and history vs. the future. It's about interrelating the available human and economic factors in understanding the market and where future resources best play.

It's about mastering international business.
