Traditional MBA programs usually require at least two years of study in order to graduate, a fact which discourages many professionals who have the academic potential needed to earn an MBA, but cannot afford to dedicate such a long period of time to it. EMBA programs make it easier to combine postgraduate study with one’s career, but the vast majority of them only provide one MBA degree from a single university. The NTNU-USC DIMBA program is a time-efficient, sensible approach to earning an MBA. The graduation requirements can be completed in just one year, and graduates are awarded an MBA from two universities: NTNU and USC. The NTNU-USC DIMBA thus makes it possible to earn two MBA degrees without putting your career on hold for an extended period, enabling you to “Work hard, Study smart!”

The NTNU-USC DIMBA program is a one-year, 48-credit program that includes an internship and thesis. Those students who meet the graduation requirements of both NTNU and USC will be awarded an MBA each from National Taiwan Normal University the University of South Carolina.
