Partnership With Taylor University (USA)
The M.A. in International Management program is provided in collaboration with our partner and US-based Taylor University. Taylor’s widely respected MBA program provides strength and inspiration for the curriculum, and their faculty bring rich international experience in Business into the classroom. The collaborative M.A. in International Management is designed with Taylor University and is carried out on both LCC’s campus, and Taylor University’s campus, with students coming from the region of Eastern Europe and beyond.
This innovative partnership provides a curriculum with a great variety of academic disciplines: Marketing Strategy, International Business, Financial Management, Business and Society, Leading Organizational Change, and more. The delivery method is based on a face-to-face instruction approach, and incorporating elements of online learning in each course.
This new graduate program in International Management is structured so that working professionals throughout the region are able to complete the program in less than 24 months. Students attend short residency sessions (in Lithuania and in the USA) at the beginning of selected academic terms, and then work online with their professors to complete coursework. The program aims to introduce students to various areas of business. Similar to other M.B.A. programs, this program was developed so that people from all educational backgrounds, not only those with business interests, can increase their skill in business and management.. Program courses are taught by both LCC and Taylor faculty members, the majority of whom hold doctorate degrees, and are actively involved in consulting and research. Upon completion of the program, students will qualify to receive two diplomas: an M.A. in International Management from LCC International University and an M.B.A. from Taylor University.
