University of Southern California

Global Program, Global Locations

A global EMBA program must feature multiple, relevant locations. With the GEMBA program, you study in several centers of global business. While we host most of our sessions in Shanghai, we also take you to Los Angeles twice, and also to an ex-China Asia business center.

The two Los Angeles trips last about eight days and the Asia trip five days.
