Byron Thomas has drawn nearly 70,000 views since he posted a video online in which he acknowledges: “I know it’s kind of weird because I’m black.”

An online global management MBA degree program is a degree designed to provide MBA graduates with the skills and knowledge that are needed to interact and conduct business with offices, clients, and customers in countries around the globe.
The creation of the European Union (E.U.) and the growing role of India and China in the international business landscape have added a new dimension to international business. An MBA in global management deals with topics that revolve around managing global markets, and allocating resources across different countries. These include human resources, technology resources, financial resources, etc. MBA graduates with a global management concentration are important to companies that are expanding into international markets. While many managers and executives may have traditional business skills, they may lack training in how to manage global business, thus the demand for managers with an international business specialization or experience.
