Study Abroad

Today’s business leaders need a deep appreciation for the challenges of a global economy, and a first-hand, immersive international experience is a transformative aspect of your graduate degree.  A strong case- or project-based study abroad experience, complete with cultural knowledge and in-depth subject matter expertise, will stand out on a resume.  You’ll enhance your capacity to work independently, understand problems, propose innovative solutions, and appreciate cultural differences in the workplace. 

In the classroom and abroad, you’ll learn first-hand through lectures and discussion with leading academic and professional experts, corporate visits, case applications, and cultural sightseeing.  All study abroad programs are for academic credit, and the on-campus and international components are delivered in English.  After the program, you will complete cases or projects applying the academic content and cultural knowledge gained abroad.
