Why study international business?
Without a study of international business, a Professional MBA program simply falls short.
Our global economy is becoming more interdependent, so you are faced with societal and cultural challenges when conducting business internationally.
To prepare you for those challenges, our international residency immerses you in a global business environment through intense learning experiences over 10 days. Gain perspective on how international economic, cultural, and regulatory environments influence business processes. The international residency features:
- Lectures from international business experts
- Distinguished guest speakers
- Site visits to a variety of country-specific businesses
- Cultural excursions
Many of our alumni say this residency is one of the most memorable, challenging, and fun parts of their Professional MBA experience.
