The first class of the Fayetteville’s campus Executive Master of Business Administration program visited Arkansas this week for orientation. But most of the projects and work will be done in Shanghai.
Daily Headlines wrote that the 13 students of the first class are all in upper-level management at U.S. companies in China. Those companies, which include Wal-Mart, Dillard’s, Kimberly-Clark and Proctor & Gamble, all nominated students for the executive MBA program.
UA professor Matt Waller said the executive MBA program isn’t all about China. It’s about multinational companies doing retail and consumer goods business on a global scale. Matt Waller, together with James Rice, wrote ‘How to make “made in China” less alarming’ in the Financial Times, December 11.
