Barry University’s Andreas School of Business is now offering students from across the globe the opportunity to earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from Barry as well as one from their native country’s university in almost half the time it would take to do both separately.
Students can take part of the Double Degree program affording them the cultural experience and networking capabilities in two separate parts of the world through partnerships with several universities worldwide. Students study two semesters in their native university and two semesters at Barry. Once their academic work is complete, students have the opportunity to work at a U.S. company where they experience hands-on learning and training
Barry MBA students will also have the chance to study abroad and earn a degree from a partnering university through the Double Degree program.
Zuleima Bustamante, a student from Universidad del Norte in Barranquilla, Colombia is the first to participate in this new program. She is an industrial engineer with a minor in computer science and is currently working on her Master of Business Administration with a specialization in International Business at Barry.
“I chose Barry for two reasons,” said Bustamante. “A strong program with capable professors was important to me on a professional level and personally speaking, the fact that Barry’s tradition is founded on catholic principles and ideals was just as important."
