A pioneer in the development of international business programs, the School of Management is uniquely positioned to prepare students for career success in a business world that is no longer defined by geographic or political boundaries.
Our MBA program also offers opportunities for students to spend a semester or summer abroad through one of our formal exchange programs. Students can earn up to 12 elective credits at a number of institutions through exchanges arranged by the Study Abroad program.
In some cases students have had the opportunity to secure international internships, facilitated through these exchange programs, or arranged with the assistance of our Career Resource Center. These internships provide students who desire a career in international business, either in the U.S. or overseas, with a competitive advantage in the global job market.
While these options are available, international study may ideally be undertaken during undergraduate years. For MBAs, in most cases, the only viable semester to spend overseas is fall of the second year. However, that is a prime timeframe for job hunting and corporate interviews so a student must consider the trade-offs inherent in possibly being out of the country during that semester. A summer experience may be possible and everyone should consider the China trip in January of their second year.
