To further their understanding of world politics, global environmental issues and international business planning, students have the option of studying abroad for a junior-year semester at Long Island University’s Global College centers in China or India.
The only program of its kind on Long Island, the B.A. in International Studies/M.B.A. draws on the strengths of LIU Post's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – renowned for its international studies offerings – and LIU Post’s College of Management, which is one of the elite 5 percent of M.B.A. programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and is regularly listed in The Princeton Review’s “Best 296 Business Schools.”
Upon successful completion of the required courses, students are awarded both a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and the Master of Business Administration – a full year less than if the degrees were pursued separately. Because students take some graduate courses as undergraduates, this option offers significant savings in time and money.
The combined bachelor’s and M.B.A. degree program requires the completion of 159 credits – 129 undergraduate credits and 30 graduate credits for the M.B.A.
