Our Executive MBA means business—international business.
Without a study of international business, an Executive MBA program simply falls short. Our global economy is becoming more interdependent, so societal and cultural challenges face you when you conduct business internationally.
To prepare you for those challenges, our international residency immerses you in a global business environment through intense learning experiences over 12 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
- Other cultural excursions
Many of our alumni say this residency is one of the most memorable, challenging, and fun parts of their Executive MBA experience.
