Due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, MGEM students graduating in 2021 are completing their coursework online. We expect that MGEM students graduating in 2022 and beyond will be able to participate fully in the study abroad experience.

The Joint Master of Global Entrepreneurial Management is a full-time, 12 month program and structured as a cohort with a modular curriculum. Members of your class begin the program at the same time in September and move through the curriculum together, completing the degree requirements for graduation as a group in August. The average cohort is 30–45 students. All courses are conducted in English; no other language proficiency is required.

There are 3 modules across 3 universities. The fall semester is spent in Spain, followed by the spring semester in Taiwan, and the program concludes in the United States at LMU for the summer semester.

Housing for the semesters at IQS in Spain and Fu Jen in Taiwan are the student's responsibility, while housing for the semester at LMU is provided on the LMU Westchester campus for an additional fee. Students are not required to live on the LMU campus and may choose to find alternative housing.
