Learn to think beyond borders. As part of the Foster MBA Program, you will analyze business cases set against the cultural and political backdrop of countries other than the United States. You won’t simply learn about doing business in a defined region. Before you complete your MBA degree, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of two international experiences, including:
Gain firsthand experience through a study tour. Because so many businesses compete in a global marketplace, it’s increasingly important to understand how operational innovations, new business practices, and critical economic issues affect, and are affected by, businesses in other countries. Students will have a chance to experience another country directly through an optional Global Business Study Tour, managed by the Global Business Center. The connections, insights, and added perspective students bring back from the study tour make this feature a high-demand international experience.
These two-week intensive “field trips” provide access to some of the most well known national and multinational companies through company tours and personal meetings with top-level executives. You also have the chance to experience foreign culture through customs, food, and architectural visits. Experience the tour alongside other graduate students who have an interest in global business. Since the tours began in 1996, several hundred graduate students have participated. This elective tour may count for two credits toward degree requirements.
Study abroad through the Foster MBA Exchange Program and expand your world view. The Foster School of Business has exchange partners with 16 partner business schools around the world.
