The M.A. in International Management/MBA program is offered in collaboration with our partner US-based Taylor University(Indiana. Taylor’s widely respected M.B.A. program provides strength and inspiration for the curriculum, and their faculty bring rich international experience in business into the classroom. The collaborative M.A. in International Management/M.B.A. is designed with Taylor University and is carried out on LCC’s campus (one session held on Taylor's campus) with students expected to come from the region of Eastern Europe, North America, and beyond.
This innovative partnership provides a program with a great variety of academic disciplines: Marketing Strategy, International Business, Financial Management, Business and Society, Leading Organizational Change, and more. The delivery method is based on a blend of face-to-face instruction and online learning in each course.
This graduate program in International Management/M.B.A. is structured so that working professionals throughout the region are able to complete the program in less than 24 months. Students attend short residency sessions at the beginning of selected academic term, and then work online with their professors to complete the remaining coursework.
The program aims to introduce students to various areas of business. Similar to other American M.B.A. programs, this program has been developed so that people with all educational backgrounds, not only those with business interests, can increase their skill in business and management.
Program courses are taught by both LCC and Taylor faculty members, the majority of whom hold doctorate degrees, and are actively involved in consulting and research. Upon completion of the program, students will qualify to receive two diplomas: M.A. In International Management from LCC International University and an MBA from Taylor University.

Today we see that broad-based Business degrees attract people from a wide range of academic disciplines and career paths. Earning a graduate degree from a well-respected program can make a difference in one’s career. A quality Masters level education can prepare a person for promotions and advancements, provide more career flexibility, and prepare him/her to be an effective leader in a variety of settings.
