Program Overview

Meet the challenges of the global marketplace

A strong understanding of business basics, including finance, marketing, operations, economics, and strategy gives students an immediate head start when they launch their careers. Hult’s Master of International Business (MIB) degree helps students acquire practical business knowledge with a focus on international and cross-cultural understanding of the marketplace. This degree is particularly well-suited to recent university graduates, both business and non-business majors, who do not have extensive work experience.

Hult’s Global Rotation Program

Our business school has been ranked #2 in International Experience and #4 in International Business by the Financial Times (2014). We firmly believe that an international perspective is crucial to understanding today’s business issues. Hult’s Global Rotation Program allows students to gain critical insights about the world’s key economies and firsthand international business experience. You can pursue your MIB in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, or Shanghai. During the elective module, you can choose to remain at your home campus or study at a different Hult campus or our rotation center in New York.

Curriculum combines hard skills with lessons in decision-making and strategy

Hult’s MIB curriculum delivers an understanding of today’s global marketplace. Initially, students focus on learning hard skills in international finance, marketing, operations, and strategy. Subsequently, through hands-on projects, they will also gain the analytical, problem solving, and critical thinking skills necessary to make decisions in a rapidly evolving, cross-cultural world.

Action Projects give you exposure to real-world companies

Hult Action Projects give you the opportunity to work with companies to solve a real-world business problem. You will work in small teams coaching from a mentor along the way. Recognizing that innovation is key to sustaining a competitive advantage and driving growth, Hult’s Action Projects ensure that you have the chance to apply all you have learned in an actual business setting, prepare you for your future career. Under the guidance of a faculty advisor, student teams will help a business develop a bold and bankable idea for future growth. The team will aim to develop insights about the particular industry and business, identify breakthrough ideas, develop a business concept, and build an implementation plan to present to senior executives.

Career opportunities

Hult’s Career Services team works closely with students to develop the skills to define, set, and achieve their professional career goals. Work starts as soon as students arrive on campus. In the fall, students take an intensive set of classes on career decision-making, résumé writing, networking, interviewing, and personal branding. Throughout the year, students can choose from a range of workshops, group sessions, and events focusing on industry insights, employability development, and job search strategies.

To ensure each student’s job search process is both efficient and strategic, we provide exposure to industries, companies, and professionals relevant to post-master career objectives, at events including recruiting fairs and networking sessions. Hult’s Career Services and Corporate Relations teams help you tap into Hult's relationships with companies, recruiters, executives, and global alumni at the world's leading companies. Major multinationals, like PepsiCo, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, Deutsche Bank, and Accenture, actively recruit Hult graduates who possess strong business skills and an international perspective.
