The University of Michigan-Flint Interim Chancellor Jack Kay and Wenchang Fang, Professor and Dean, College of Business, National Taipei University (NTPU), Taiwan, recently signed an agreement establishing a dual Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. UM-Flint School of Management (SOM) Dean Jack Helmuth (center in photo) also signed.

NTPU is ranked one of the top public universities in Taiwan. The SOM MBA Program is fully accredited by AACSB—International, the premier accreditation agency for business programs worldwide.

“We are extremely pleased to have such a prominent partner at NTPU,” said Dean Helmuth. “With this new agreement, students will broaden their perspectives so they can approach problems not only from multiple functional viewpoints, but from global and ethical perspectives as well. SOM will continue its efforts to assist with internationalizing the UM-Flint campus.”

Students who successfully complete the graduation requirements of this program are awarded two degrees: MBA degree from the University of Michigan-Flint and an MBA degree awarded by National Taipei University. The dual MBA program consists of an initial study period on the NTPU campus and approximately 12 months on the UM-Flint campus for a general MBA, and longer for an MBA with a concentration. To reduce the duration of study, some of the graduate coursework on the Flint campus may be taken in mixed online and residency format in the highly acclaimed NetPlus! program.
