Online MBA 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 a great opportunity to enrich your global business and cultural knowledge, forge exciting new connections, and gain an international edge.

The Online MBA has 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 to study abroad, during your 7 to 12 days of travel you will:

  • Visit multinational and local company offices/plants
  • 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.
