Business
today is global.

A relevant business education must be a
global one. Now that 60% of the worlds economic
output crosses an international border, its no longer
enough to understand how business works.You also
need to know how the world works.

The list of leaders is


changing faster than
you think.
By many measures, China has already overtaken the
U.S. as the worlds largest economy. China has built a rail
system in the past two decades that could circle the globe
three times, and the Chinese own more smartphones than
any other country.
London is the worlds most international
city. Hult has three separate campuses in
the Greater London area.

Spending time at Hults campus in Shanghai


allows you to experience how the Chinese
economy impacts almost everything.

The influence of
emerging markets
is on the rise.


Emerging markets now import more goods
than developed economies. They also produce over
50% of the worlds GDP. Their foreign investment
exceeds 440 billion dollarsmore than the U.S. and
Europe combined.

The worlds largest


cities have more
economic power than
many countries.
New York City vies neck-in-neck
with Tokyo as the worlds most powerful
city. Its 1.1 trillion dollar economic output
exceeds that of Mexico.

Hult offers electives in downtown Manhattan


within walking distance of Wall Street.

Hult Dubai places you at the crossroads


of trade, media, and tourism in one of the
worlds most vibrant emerging markets.

Technology is
changing everything.


Uber is the worlds largest taxi company,
but it doesnt own any cars. Airbnb has more rooms
worldwide than Hilton, but it doesnt own any hotels.
Alibaba is one of the planets largest retailers, yet
it carries no inventory.

Hult is the
global business
school.
Hults Global One-Year MBA offers the most practical
and global business education available. Learn about the real
world of business, in real time. Study at up to three of our
seven campuses in what will be the most intense year of
your life.

This is the world


of global business...

Everything you learn is backed by examples from their collective
successes as corporate executives, business owners, inventors,
and entrepreneurs.
A different approach to
what makes a great professor.
Unlike the faculty of most universitieswho
are primarily researchers and authorsHult
professors pride themselves first-and-foremost on
their ability to excel in the classroom. Many have
achieved significant success in the real world, and
are keen to share it with their students. Some
have worked in large multinationals like
McKinsey & Company, Coca-Cola, and Credit
Suisse. Others have run their own businesses and
enterprises. Several have developed their own
patents for goods and services.

HULT.EDU/MBA

CURRICULUM

Business knowledge:
The core

How would you


fare against a venture
capitalist?

All MBA programs teach the fundamentals of strategy, finance


and management. What sets Hult apart, is the way we bring the
core concepts of business knowledge to life through experiential
teaching techniques and guest lectures from industry leaders,
while enhancing every subject with a global perspective.

It is a well-known fact in the business


community that venture capitalists are
notoriously tricky to convince. Before
they are willing to invest in any new
company, they interrogate every nut and
bolt of the young business. No stone is
left unturned while they get to know the
inner machinations of how the business
will work, and assess whether future
growth proposals are realistic.

Back to basics.
Your MBA program begins with a
three-week Immersion. Past students
have nicknamed this Boot Camp,
because from day one you grapple
with building blocks of business
through intensive lectures, seminars
and workshops. You also begin to
assess your leadership strengths and
weaknesses through coaching and
team-building exercises. Then, for
your first three modules, your core
courses will focus on the basics of
business theorytaught from a
global perspective.

Experts in bringing the


fundamental concepts to life.
Since we all learn best by doing, your
professors will periodically take you
out of the classroom to help bring
core subjects to life. We set up
dynamic simulations, have students
work through difficult role-play
situations with actors, use
computer-based models to market
and sell products, and organize
outdoor activities to learn teamwork
and leadership skills. One of our more
unconventional approaches is to pitch
students against professional poker
players in a lesson designed to teach
the art of risk management! By the
time you have completed your core
studies, you will not only know all the
fundamentals of business, you will
have experienced many of them
firsthand.

26

GLOBAL ONE-YEAR MBA

Hear the inside story, directly


from industry leaders.
Each Hult campus hosts a Global
Speaker Series so that you have the
opportunity to hear directly from the
worlds brightest minds. In the past,
Hult has welcomed thought leaders
such as Steve Wozniak (Co-founder
of Apple), Biz Stone (Co-founder of
Twitter), Arianna Huffington (founder
and editor of The Huffington Post) and
Muhammad Yunus (Nobel Peace Prize
Winner) to share their inspirational
stories and the lessons they have
learned on the way to the top. These
sessions offer invaluable insight into
cutting-edge business trends, and
provide access to the people who
are defining the shape of business
(see pp. 20-21).

At Hult, we believe in throwing students


into the deep end, so we devised the
Venture Strategy competition. The aim of
this two-day contest is to simulate a real-life,
high-pressure environment where you and
your teammates compete against other
companies to secure funding to launch a
tech startup.

Core courses:
Strategy
Analysis for Business Decisions
Managerial Economics
International Marketing
Business and Global Society
Global Strategies in Action

Teams are systematically eliminated over


two days, and winners are selected across
numerous categories, including highest
return on investment, largest market share,
and best management team.

Management
Creating High-performance
Organizations
Global Operations Management
Entrepreneurial Leadership

Being put in the hot seat like this truly


makes students scrutinize the viability of
both their business idea and business plan.
The mix of computer simulation and
real-world interaction throughout the
competition teaches you:

Finance
Accounting in a Global
Environment
International Finance
Corporate Finance

How to create innovative business plans


with a unique marketing niche
How to pitch your business idea to potential
investors over the course of multiple rounds


The simulations
really helped me to navigate conflict
that inevitably arises when youre
working in teams with diverse people.

How to work in cross-functional teams to


make investment, production, sales and
marketing decisions that will ultimately
determine whether your business succeed

Previous students have thoroughly enjoyed


this simulation, despite (or maybe because
of) the very steep learning curve. Last year,
25 MBA students went on to launch their
own businesses after graduation, proving that
Hult really does foster entrepreneurial spirit.

Melanie Eusebe:
Hult Leadership Coach

Though few of us are born natural leaders, leadership can


be taught. Hult integrates the best leadership development
practices from the worlds top companies into our MBA
curriculum so you can make an immediate impact when
you return to the workforce.

Melanie Eusebe mentors students as a


Leadership Coach for the LEAD program
at Hult London.
Melanie relishes sharing the knowledge she
has gained as an independent management
consultant and team leader for global
companies such as IBM and Ernst & Young
especially in the areas of brand management,
organizational development, and operational
strategy. Melanie feels particularly passionate
about inspiring a new generation of
exceptional business leaders through role
modeling, which led her to found the Black
British Business Awards in 2012.

An award-winning leadership
development methodology
In 2014, Hult won the prestigious
Association of MBAs Innovation
Award for our ground-breaking
approach to incorporating the best
tools and techniques from
preeminent corporate leadership
development programs into our MBA
curriculum. Hult students develop five
key leadership competencies across
three development areas that
employers deem critical to success
(right). We call this the Hult LEAD
ModelLeadership through
Evaluation, Awareness and
Development.

How does LEAD work?


Since leadership can only truly be
learned through practice, Hult
students undergo a continuous
process of training, application, and
mentorship throughout their program
year. Critical to this process is
constant feedback and support from
fellow students and professional

The Business Challenge:


Practical experience

Hult MBA students rise to


the challenge

Put all the business knowledge and leadership skills you learn to
the test with this seven-month competition in which you and
your teammates devise a game-changing idea to solve an existing
problem for a major corporation, or to create the business plan
for a startup.

Rise to the challenge and make


a real impact
The key concepts of business can
certainly be introduced by a
teacher, case study, or textbook. But
they cannot truly be mastered
until they are grappled with firsthand.
The Business Challenge is a
seven-month group project to solve a
real business problem. Its designed to
help you develop and test innovative
ideas that really make a difference
not only to your MBA program but in
your future career and beyond.

How it works

A launchpad for you career

The competition starts in Module A,


when students form teams and
choose a Business Challenge track. In
the CEO Challenge, you select a
problem set by top executives from
major multinationals. In the Startup
Challenge, you bring your own idea to
life for a new product, service, or
social enterprise. Throughout the
remainder of the year, your team
meets regularly to hone your
innovative idea into an actionable
plan, thanks to regular mentorship
and guidance from your professors
and local business professionals.

The Business Challenge culminates in


a series of regional elimination
rounds, where teams compete
head-to-head to advance to the Global
Final, held at one of our campuses
worldwide. Finalists get to present
their business ideas to a panel of
esteemed judges comprised of
executives, global entrepreneurs, and
well-known founders of social
enterprises. The challenge isnt just an
academic exercise, but the first step to
your dream job, or the launch pad for
your own startup or social enterprise.

Background:
IBM has developed a supercomputer
Watson which is capable of learning and
adapting in the same way as humans. IBM
calls this capability cognitive computing,
an advanced form of Artificial Intelligence.
Watson gained fame by winning the U.S.
quiz show Jeopardy, and IBM CEO
Ginni Rometty has made it a centerpiece of
the companys strategy going forward. She
is convinced that Watson and cognitive
computing will transform how we live and
do business. The power of Watson has
already been put to use transforming the
way medical research and diagnosis is done
for important disease areas.
2015 IBM challenge:
Create an actionable business idea showing
how IBM could put their AI technology to
use, and shape future product development
strategies using AI systems like Watson.
One Hult teams solution:
Team IBM Helpdesk from Hult London
tackled the problem of inefficient help desks
and call centers that are not customercentric. Their idea was to create a smarter
and more helpful desk agent that could
eliminate queues, discern and analyze
trends, and respond more effectively and
efficiently to customer needs. This would
allow IBM to create a scalable and
commercially viable range of new customer
service products for a wide range of
industries.

Being able to rotate campuses
was a major reason I chose Hult. From
Boston, I rotated to Dubai because this city
has established itself as a major destination
for trade,commerce, and tourism. All the
major companies in the world have set up
their regional headquarters in Dubai to
serve all of the Middle East and Africa. This
has resulted in multiple opportunities for me,
especially in the financial sector.

How Hult Career Services


helped Umesh Tiwari land
his dream job

We understand that launching an international career is one


of the main reasons for getting an MBA. At Hult, our Global
Career Services professionals begin preparing you for a
successful job search from the moment you are accepted.

During your MBA: Consult with our


career counselors

Before you arrive:


Get a head-start with our
Fast-Track program.
As soon as you are accepted to the
MBA program, you are eligible to
enroll in our Fast-Track career
counseling program, which includes a
detailed skills assessment, a review of
your current CV as well as editing
advice, and access to a series of
webinars on career planning,
employment trends, and industry
insights. You also gain access to the
myHult portalan invaluable resource
for helping you define, set and achieve
your future career goals.

Hult maintains a dedicated network of


Global Career Services professionals
at every campus to prepare you for
your international job search. Most
have worked as recruiters for top
employers and know what companies
look for in a job candidateboth
globally and locally. Expect a direct
and honest assessment; a challenging
series of workshops on interviewing,
CV-writing, negotiation, and personal
branding; as well as plenty of
encouragement and support. Hults
Global Corporate Relations team
works closely with Fortune 500
companies in 60+ markets to arrange
on-campus network events, global
career open houses, and sponsorship
of the Business Challenge.

Just six months into his MBA program,


Umesh Tiwari secured a six-figure
salary job with Amazon. Umesh credits
his Career Services advisor, Laura, for
helping him discover his true potential.

Sometimes you need to listen to
your heart and take a leap of faith. This is
exactly what I did when I made my
decision to pursue an MBA at Hult. I quit
my senior exec job, invested a big chunk of
my savings, left my home in India, and
flew to Hult San Francisco.

I started my job search before I
arrived at Hult through Career Services
Fast-Track program. But the real magic
happened when I started meeting with my
designated advisor, Laura Maish, in person.
My interactions with Hults Career
Services have been an intense process of
self-discovery, like polishing a stone into a
diamond.

I strictly followed all Lauras
advice; so when I met a Hult alumnus who
was a guest speaker on campus and now
works at Amazon, all my credentials were
in line. I connected with him on LinkedIn,
I got exposure to Amazons recruiter
network, and the rest is history.

When you graduate: Connect with


firms via our Corporate Employer
Network
An exclusive benefit for Hult alumni is
lifetime access to our Corporate
Employer Network, an in-house
database of thousands of organizations and corporations actively
seeking to hire Hult students. We
foster long-term relationships with the
worlds most desirable companies to

I always wanted to work in the U.S., specifically in Boston,
and the MBA from Hult allowed me to achieve that goal. At Hult, I
had the opportunity to develop my knowledge of the local market in
more depth while concurrently building my network, both in the city
and globally. After graduation, I worked for a non-profit financial
services organization in Boston that specializes in impact investment
and microfinance.

San Francisco is home to the biggest


breakthrough companies of the twenty-first
century, assuming almost epicenter status for
the worlds most forward-thinking
entrepreneurs.The technology born here by
the likes of Apple, Google, and Facebook has
not only brought about huge shifts in the
global marketplace, it has also changed the
face of corporate culture. San Francisco has
become a byword for creativity, and its
success stories epitomize what it means to
have a truly entrepreneurial mindset.

Why choose
San Francisco

Hult
San Francisco

A perfect blend

A wealth of opportunities

San Francisco is the ideal location for


the digitally driven age we currently
live in. The city has long been
powered by the startup economy,
earning itself a global reputation for
creativity and technological wizardry.
Indeed, having seen a generation of
determined entrepreneurs build huge
business empires out of garages and
college dorm rooms, San Francisco
has become the worlds premier
destination for those wanting to push
the boundaries of the possible. Silicon
Valley, just south of the city, is the
worlds leading tech hub, and is home
to anyone who is anyone in the digital
world, including Facebook, Twitter,
eBay, Uber and Airbnb. Yet 85% of
companies in the Bay Area have less
than ten employees. This blend of
small and mighty makes for a truly
unique business community, where
forward thinking and creativity are the
most highly prized credentials.

A diverse population, startup driven


economy, and a notoriously informal
approach to corporate etiquette mean
that many conventional business rules
have no place in San Francisco.
A business fraternity of marketers,
creatives, operations specialists,
finance experts, and consultants fuel
the tech-driven industries, so
whatever your business skills, you can
be sure that your perfect role exits.
Social entrepreneurship and
sustainability are high on the citys
agenda so anyone with experience in
these fields is particularly highly
sought after.


At Hult San Francisco, I was surrounded by a community of
go-getters and innovators who were ready to redefine business success.
The diversity in the classroom meant we could exchange ideas about
real international policies and business practices. And we were not only
analyzing case studieswe were collaborating with local businesses with
real-time problems to solve.

The renowned meet-up culture
combines making meaningful business
connections with socializing. Our campus
is geographically well placed to take

Francisco students tend to have an
entrepreneurial mindset and dont waste

partnerships are forged and initiatives
started while studies are still being
completed.

Student participants in the CEO track


of the Business Challenge work with
executives on a long-term project to
solve a real business challenge.
Students get the opportunity to
collaborate with companies like
General Electric, Starbucks, LinkedIn,
Twitter, NASA, and Fairtrade to devise

capitalists, and entrepreneurs.


Hults San Francisco campus provides an

Londons supremacy as the


commercial capital of Europe has been
unrivaled for hundreds of years, yet it has
also managed to stay at the forefront of the
creative industries. It is the worlds most
international city, and an economic
powerhouse to be reckoned with. More
multinational companies are headquartered
here than in any other European city.

Why
choose London
The economic epicenter
of Europe
People from almost 200 countries call
London home, and you can hear over
300 languages spoken on its streets.
Yet, peculiarly British idiosyncrasies
are openly embraced by this
incredibly vibrant cultural melting pot,
meaning it doesnt take long to feel at
home. Centuries of economic
success, an established reputation as
a global financial center, and a
distinguished history of academic
excellence give London the
confidence to be creative. Its
distinctive brand of music, fashion,
art, and film continues to set global
trends. The citys business landscape
is as international as the population.
Over 250 foreign banks have
branches here, and 588 foreign
companies are listed on the London
Stock Exchange. The world has a very
real stake in London, and London in
turn thrives on its international
reputation.

Hult London

Limitless career options


Every major industry is represented in
London, offering a huge variety of
career opportunities. Finance may be
the sector that most people
traditionally associate with London,
but the creative industries are really
making their mark on the citys
landscape. 70% of Europes major
advertising agencies have offices in
London, and careers in marketing are
increasingly popular. Over recent
years a vibrant startup scene has
boomed, and it is now the European
leader in the digital and technology
sectors. The world is your oyster
if you choose to work in London.


London is one of the few cities in the world that is
truly global. As you walk through the streets, you will hear more
than a dozen languages, and meet a broad range of interesting
people. That is reflected in Hults London campus.

Hults graduate campus is a

building with views over the historic
Grays Inn Gardens, where the citys
leading barristers have been based
since 1370. Spread over six floors, the
interior has been transformed into a
modern stylish study environment,
while the exterior retains all the
period features you would expect
from a building of this age. An
open-plan atrium, event space, bright
classrooms, and 16 breakout rooms
are just some of the fantastic facilities
that students can take advantage of.
The roof deck and courtyard where
you can enjoy an in-between-lectures
coffee are the cherries on the cake.

Our campus borders the academic


heartland of Bloomsbury, which has
the highest concentration of
universities in London, and Holborn,
a global media, marketing, and
advertising hub. The financial district
is a short distance away, and if you
head eastwards, you hit Tech City,
Europes largest startup cluster
centered around Old Street. Youre
also in walking distance of Covent
Gardens theaters, Oxford Streets
shopping, and Sohos nightlife.

During class time and through


campus-organized events, we aim to
give our students every possible
opportunity to meet people at the top
of their professions and engage in
real-world business issues. Procter &
Gamble, PwC, Barclays, Burberry,
Mars, and BSkyB were just some of
the 120 companies who shared their
business insights with our MBA
graduates last year. Our regular
industry panel events see contentious
business issues debated live by

of audiences made up from the

people.

Why
choose Dubai
The Middle Easts international
trading center
Dubais staggering growthupwards,
outwards and financiallycontinues
to surpass all expectations. Known as
the gateway to the Middle East, Dubai
is a meeting place for the worlds
largest economies with wellestablished trading links to the Gulf,
Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and
India. Foreign investment has tripled
since 2009 and Dubais successful
bid to host the 2020 World Expo has
boosted the citys economy even
further. Dubai is a city going places
fastmeaning it is hungry for talent.
A young, international and ambitious
population adds to the dynamic
atmosphere; almost 90% of the
people living in the city originate from
outside the U.A.E. The lifestyle in
Dubai reflects its position as a global
leader of the luxury goods market.

Dubai thinks big and acts fast. In just


two decades it has transformed itself into a
major international trading hub, capitalizing
on its strategic position at the crossroads of
the Eastern and Western worlds. The city has
huge self-belief (just look at its epic skyline),
and the mantra that anything is possible is
widely upheld. Its pivotal role in global
industries such as energy, healthcare and
luxury goods, make it an exhilarating place
to do business.

Hungry for international talent


Alumni from our Dubai campus enjoy
the highest employment rates of all
our Hult locations. 77% of graduates
go on to enjoy careers in regions
beyond their home country. Those
wanting to accelerate their
international career search wont find

Why choose
Hult Ashridge
Historic campus at the
cutting-edge of education
Set in extensive parkland in the
Hertfordshire countryside, the
Ashridge Estate has at one stage
in its colorful past been the private
hunting lodge of King Henry VIII
and the residence of his daughter,
Queen Elizabeth I. For the last fifty
years, Ashridge Business School has
developed executives and managers
in the fields of leadership, strategy
and change. Today Ashridge is
ranked by Bloomberg Business and
the Financial Times as one of the best
schools in the world for Custom
Executive Education, and has long
been recognized for its world-class
faculty. Ashridge also has a long
tradition of cutting-edge research,
publishing its own journal, engaging
companies in their latest innovations,
and hosting thought-leadership
conferences.

We are extremely pleased to

available to MBA students on global
rotation. This former royal residence is now
home to Ashridge Business School, a global
leader in executive education that has
recently merged with Hult. The campus is

of a historic stately home. Students
experience a world-class education in
magnificent rural surroundings, while having
easy access to Europes economic capital.

Facilities fit for a king


Around Ashridge are trails for
running, biking, horse riding, and
walking. There are two golf courses
nearby and a health club and fitness
center on site with tennis courts, a
swimming pool, Jacuzzi, spa, and
sauna. Students stay in one of the
190 en-suite bedrooms, and get to
enjoy being cooked for by the

leadership skills and helped me to make the progression
from specialist to manager. Here, I learned that diversity
and mutual encouragement are the main factors for
building high performance teams, no matter the industry,
scope, or location.

Hult offered a complete international

as part of my Business Challenge project, finding
solutions to real problems in the complex domestic

HOW TO APPLY

Scholarships and financial


assistance
Our Global One-Year MBA is cost-effective because our
graduates start reaping the benefits of their degree earlier than
most leading two-year programs. But we recognize that an MBA
is a significant investment. We work closely with you to find the
best options to fund your programincluding scholarships,
financial assistance, and educational loans.

Hult scholarships

Educational loans

GoEd Student Financing

Hult scholarships are designed to help


us find the best global talent and
maximize diversity. Our scholarships
cover a wide range of backgrounds,
industries, sectors, and nationalities.

The majority of our students utilize


some form of education loan, even if
they receive a scholarship or financial
assistance. Students requiring
additional financing for their program
fees have two main loan options:

Hult has established an exclusive


partnership with GoEd Student
Financing to offer loans to international
students at very competitive interest
rates. Loans are typically offered over
five years, with a repayment schedule
that starts six months after graduation.
Hult and GoEd work with students
through each step of a simple process
so that students will know promptly if
their loan application has been accepted.

A few examples of available


scholarships include:
Academic Excellence
Scholarships
Social Impact Scholarships
Entrepreneurial Impact
Scholarship
Scholarships are awarded to eligible
candidates who demonstrate the
strongest potential. Candidates are
required to prove they meet each
scholarship criteria through evidence,
and/or a written or video submission.
Competition for scholarships increases
as the year progresses, so we
recommend applying early.

Local bank loans and


government support
Financial institutions in many countries
offer MBA education financing
specifically to local citizens. These
loans are typically repayable after
completion of the course, although
terms vary widely. Depending on
where you are from, you may be eligible
for loan and grant opportunities offers
offered by your government. We work
with candidates to help them identify
suitable financial institutions and
government programs.
