International and Domestic Residencies

Why study regional or international business?

Online MBA students can choose to participate in in-person domestic or international residencies which provide learning experiences domestically (in the United States) or internationally. Without a study of regional or international business, an MBA program simply falls short.

Our regional and global economy is becoming more interdependent. Businesses are faced with societal and cultural challenges when conducting business outside of their city, state, or internationally.

To prepare you for those challenges, our domestic and international residencies immerse you in different business environments through experiential learning experiences. Gain perspective on how economic, cultural, and regulatory environments influence business processes.

Our international and domestic residencies feature a business consulting challenge. Students traveling are divided into teams to work on real-world projects with companies in the destination city or country. Teams are given an overview of projects and given time to develop a strategy to address them. The conclusion of the business challenge is the final team presentation results to the company CEO and staff.

Many of our alumni say this residency is one of the most memorable, challenging and fun parts of their MBA experience.
