International and Domestic Residencies


Why study regional or international business?

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.

The international and domestic residencies may feature:

  • Lectures from business experts
  • Distinguished guest speakers
  • Site visits to a variety of regional or country-specific businesses
  • Cultural excursions

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