Graduate Business Global Experience

Gain a Whole New Perspective 

Globalization is increasing, and so is the need for employees who understand how business is done in key markets around the world. A study abroad program is an opportunity to enrich your global business and cultural knowledge, forge exciting new connections, and gain an international edge.

The Part-time Flex MBA, Online MBA and Global Business Graduate Certificate have a global elective curricular requirement. To fulfill this, you can either take an on-campus course with a global component, or take a short-term study abroad program. If you choose the study abroad, during your 7 to 12 days of travel you will:

  • Visit multinational and local companies
  • Observe successful companies operating in a different business framework
  • Take an in-depth look at location-specific business topics
  • See historic sites and engage in a variety of cultural activities.

The Opus College of Business continually assesses risk associated with local and global health, safety, and security for all University-approved study abroad programs. Graduate Business study abroad programs for J-Term 2021 will not be offered due to the risk of COVID-19. Study abroad options will be offered once it has been deemed safe to do so.
