[photopress:mba_webster.jpg,full,alignright]Webster University is to launch a global MBA program in 2008 which will be taught on five different campuses, in Vienna, Leiden in the Netherlands, London, Geneva and Shanghai.
The 11-month program will be aimed at US students and for those at the younger end of the MBA spectrum, with little work experience. The idea that students charging around the world attending each of these campuses will easily imbibe knowledge is an interesting one.
The school is hoping for 25 students in the initial group.
Webster, which is headquartered in St Louis, has a network of international campuses run by other institutions. Webster, including the international campuses, has access to 1,500 faculty worldwide and at present there are 13,000 business students enrolled on its programs, including 5,500 on its existing MBA programs. And, yes, the illustration of Webster University does look a little like a Royal palace in England.
