“California functions as a true global crossroads,” says Melissa Holland, Manchester Business School and global MBA Regional Director, Miami-Americas Centre. “Our Global MBA is designed for such a market, and for its rising managers and directors with substantial experience in international business.”

Prince and Prime Minister
UK ties to and interests in the United States have drawn attention in recent days with coordinated visits by UK Prime Minister David Cameron, and Prince Harry of Wales. Prince Harry and Prime Minister Cameron kicked off a global tour promoting Britain as a world class destination for trade, tourism, investment and education as part of the GREAT Britain Campaign.

About California’s Global Diversity

With an annual economy of $1.8 trillion, California ranks just below the world’s seven largest countries in total GDP. Its multinational reach includes some of the world’s most recognized corporate names and cultures, ranging from energy (Chevron) to health care (McKesson) to finance (Wells Fargo, Visa) and, most notably, the IT/entertainment/information age (Apple, Intel, Cisco Systems, Walt Disney, Qualcomm and Google). California has been called the nation’s “symbolic capital,” oriented both to the Pacific and the Americas. Some 39.7% of the region’s population is foreign-born. Nearly 43% of California residents speak a language other than English at home, a proportion far higher than any other state. California's Asian population is estimated at 4.5 million, approximately one-third of the nation's 14.9 to 15.1 million Asian Americans. Southern California, like no other region of the world, has crossed over to become a “minority-majority” region. Ethnic enclaves like Chinatown, Historic Filipinotown, Koreatown, Little Armenia, Little Ethiopia, Little Bangladesh in Mid-City, Los Angeles, Little Moscow in Hollywood, Little Tokyo, several Little Saigons, Tehrangeles in West Los Angeles and Thai Town provide examples of the polyglot multicultural character of Los Angeles.
