All business today is global. Around the world, supply chains, economies and markets are inextricably intertwined, so effective business leaders must develop an international perspective. That is why the Part-Time MBA Program offers our annual faculty-led international immersions during breaks in the academic calendar to make global business and culture come alive, in both first-world and developing economies. Our past destinations have included Germany, Belgium, India, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Italy, Greece, Japan, Thailand and Singapore.

Trips are organized around business visits with presentations from high-level company representatives. You may tour a manufacturing facility, go to an international stock exchange, or explore social entrepreneurship in a financially challenged settlement. Don’t be surprised if you also ride an elephant, see the sunrise over Angkor Wat, or explore the Coliseum in Rome! Your boots-on-the-ground experience will help you understand international economics; discover broad cultural issues and learn how they affect business; and navigate effective decision-making in unfamiliar or cross-cultural settings. These transformative educational experiences will give you a window on world business. So, where will you go?
Loans through federal financial aid are available to cover international trip expenses, because immersions are tied to 1.5 credit-hour elective academic courses. Our most common immersion is a Spring Break trip of approximately 10 days.
