International Trips - International Exchange Programs

Because business is global, we recognize the need to prepare our students to participate in world markets. Our goals are to:

  • Provide our MBA students with valuable experiences in international business, culture, economics, and politics.
  • Provide exposure to global business practices and strategy.
  • Provide our MBA students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge, skills, and communicative abilities in a global context and to advance intercultural communication.

These exchange programs offer courses that are unique or specialized which in turn complement our MBA program and the student’s career track.
