Global Engagement

The Mason School of Business is at the frontier of global experiential learning.  We encourage each student to incorporate an international experience into their Individual Program of Study (IPS).   We provide curricular sequencing so all students may study abroad for a semester without delaying graduation and advising to help students maximize their experience while abroad.  

However, study abroad is only one of multiple ways to engage in global experiences at the Mason School of Business.  Social entrepreneurship projects and international internships also provide practical experience in this dynamic environment.  Learning diverse ways to engage, Undergraduate Business students from the Mason School of Business are equipped to enter the dynamic, global business environment which awaits them after graduation.
