Upcoming Graduate School Information Sessions & Workshops

Long Island University
Accelerated Global MBA Program
Information Session

Wednesday, April 18, 7:00-8:00pm
Amherst College Fayerweather 113

Looking to earn an MBA quickly while also traveling the world and immersing yourself in leading global economies' customs and practices? The one-year accelerated Global MBA offered by the University of Cambridge, Fudan University, and Long Island University Post is a unique MBA program for students to have immersive learning experiences at three of the world’s business centers: London, Shanghai, and New York.

Through this, students will experience the cultures, economies, businesses, and public policies in Europe, Asia, and North America. They will live and study at Cambridge University (ranked #2 in the world) for five weeks, taught by Cambridge faculty or top visiting professors. Then, Global MBA students travel to Dublin and Lisbon for experiential learning and research. Students also live and study at Fudan University in Shanghai (ranked #3 in all of China and top 50 worldwide) for four weeks. There, students are taught by Fudan faculty and travel to Hong Kong and Beijing for experiential learning and discovery.

Currently this is the only MBA taught in multiple leading global cities, wherein all three locations are among the top 20 offering the most post-graduate opportunities, per a recent report released by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Partnership for New York City.

Join Greg Wagner, senior associate for graduate recruitment at LIU Post's College of Management, to learn more about this unique graduate program, whether it is a good fit for your short- and long-term goals, and how to successfully apply for it.

The decision to attend a graduate or professional school and when to attend are questions with answers which are unique for each individual. Use these pages to advise and assist you when deciding upon you own path.

Deciding to Apply

There is no “timeline” of when or if one is supposed to attend a post-Smith education. For many, the reason to attend a graduate program is to satisfy a personal journey:

  • it is a subject that one purely wants to study in depth as a scholar, or
  • it is needed for employment or advancement in a particular career field.

When your reason to attend a graduate program has motivated you, begin to evaluate your credentials and explore the various graduate programs. Consult with others who can assist you in your endeavor:

  • Speak with faculty who can advise you on programs in your field of interest
  • Meet with a Lazarus Center advisor to help coordinate the logistics of your application
  • Network with Smith alums and other professionals in the field who can share their personal experiences
  • Contact admission representatives of your selected graduate programs about their programs.

Your decision to attend graduate school should be carefully planned and strategically crafted.
