However, it's worth noting that the global campuses are not yet part of the Global MBA -- they are for the Cross Continent MBA, which is different. (There are some branding issues in the naming of these programs, IMHO -- too similar and confusing.)
That definitely fooled me. But upon further your glance you're right. Here are the bullet points of the 2 programs:
# Program format combines unique residential sessions in Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North America with Internet-enabled distance learning, including weekly virtual classroom sessions.
# Students can live and work anywhere in the world while pursuing The Duke MBA.
# Global business content is taught on location in major business markets around the world.
# Option to pursue a concentration in a specific academic area of interest.
* Program format combines unique residential sessions in Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America with Internet-enabled distance learning.
* Students can live and work anywhere in the world while pursuing The Duke MBA.
* Students are all senior managers with significant work experience who bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the classroom and leave the program with a strengthened network of contacts from around the world.
* An optional concentration in Health Sector Management is available for students seeking specialized training in the business of health care.
Basically the only real difference I see between the 2 is that the Global MBA is intended for 30+ people with more work experience than the cross continent one, and that the cross continent expects people to physically show up in class at the learning center.
Are there any other significant differences that people have noticed?
