School of Global Business

Welcome from Chair Kurthakoti

Welcome to the School of Global Business


Thank you for visiting the website of Arcadia University’s School of Global Business, your path to greater success in the increasingly international marketplace.  I joined Arcadia University in the fall of 2011 as a Marketing faculty member.  As the current Chair of the School of Global Business, I look forward to sharing with all of you the opportunities our school provides and future developments that are about to make your experience at Arcadia even more valuable to your career.

Students are the top priority of faculty, staff, and administration at Arcadia University. The School of Global Business embodies its mission and focuses on developing decision making skills for an ever changing global workplace using a comprehensive curriculum rooted in experiential learning delivered through a personal educational experience. 

The school prepares its students in a technologically advancing world by integrating technology into the learning experience through the use of computer-based total enterprise simulations, virtual collaborative team projects etc. 

The school also provides opportunities for students’ personal and intellectual growth by providing opportunities to participate in global level competitions notably the International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition (ICBSC) and the X-Culture Global Symposium.

The school offers undergraduate degree programs in Accounting, Healthcare Administration, International Business and Culture, Sport Management, and Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, Management, Economics, and Finance. We also offer minors in Accounting, Economics, Healthcare Administration, and Sport Management. For over a decade, the school of business has offered a Masters of Business Administration with a Global Perspective. This program provides a unique perspective to students by requiring two international business experiences where students travel to both a developed and an emerging economy.

Our programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and are designed to deliver a challenging first-hand experience for those who wish to obtain a global perspective in dealing with the demands of managing in a world-wide economy.

Arcadia University’s School of Global Business provides numerous opportunities to enhance your management skills through meeting with business executives, alumni and our global curriculum; along with study abroad and internship opportunities through Arcadia University's College of Global Studies. School of Global Business students are currently studying in London, Sydney, Rome, Barcelona, Tokyo, and beyond. 70% of our 2019 undergraduate class studied abroad at least once, while 100% of our traditional 22 month M.B.A. students have two study abroad experiences.

The School of Global Business at Arcadia University invites you to come to our beautiful campus to meet with our enrollment management representatives, students, and faculty. Transform your view about business education and meet the future with Arcadia University's School of Global Business.
