A highlight of the program is that students live and work around the world while pursuing the Duke MBA.
Program Format/Program Schedule: Sixty percent of classroom time takes place during the residencies in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Students study, discuss, and experience the way in which region-specific institutions, markets, cultures, and civilizations both enhance international commerce and marketplaces.
