Global Executive MBA Program Includes Overseas Experience

Applications are now being accepted for a new executive MBA program offered by California State University, Hayward and designed to offer Bay Area mid-career and senior managers a global business education.

The Transnational Executive MBA program (TEMBA), to begin in January 2001, will include team-based projects for overseas companies, teamwork with overseas managers and travel to other countries to complete courses in "global management" skills.

An information meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 23 in the PG&E Learning Center, 3301 Crow Canyon Road, San Ramon.

The TEMBA program will be conducted over 13 months. Participants will complete 11 courses in the Bay Area and two more at one or more of the six international campuses in Beijing, Hong Kong, Moscow, Sao Paolo, Singapore or Vienna.

Bay Area courses will meet once a month for a four-day extended weekend session at the PG&E Learning Center in San Ramon. Participants will spend the night at the facility, which has more than 100 rooms.

Local sessions will feature simulations and group exercises. Coursework will include group projects that involve Internet connections.

An important feature of the transnational MBA program is a consulting project designed to develop international business skills.

"We will put together teams of five members who will serve as consultants to real-world clients overseas," said Shyam Kamath, director of the TEMBA program. "They will complete an analysis of the client's business strategy, then fly to that country and present their findings to the board of directors and management team."

Kamath said Cal State Hayward has had 11 years of experience in developing the business consulting project and called it, "a hands-on global consulting experience that is unparalleled elsewhere."

The School of Business and Economics at Cal State Hayward was the first American business school to establish an MBA program in Russia. It also offers an executive MBA program in Vienna and other MBA programs in Hong Kong, Beijing, Sao Paolo and Singapore.

"Cal State Hayward is one of the most globalized business schools in the country today," Kamath said.
