  • The one-week international residency takes place in the fourth semester of the EMBA program, and is an important part of the International Business course. This residency includes plant tours and interviews with company officials and takes students to countries in which many of the program's sponsoring organizations do business. 
  • The residency is required for EMBA program participants. The cost of the residency is included in the total program fee and includes in-country airfare, ground transportation, lodging, course materials and some meals. The cost of the flight to and from the international residency location is not included in the total program fee and is each student's responsibility.

"The international residency is the capstone experience of your executive education. It's your opportunity to help solve a current business problem or meaningfully contribute on an organization's global business challenge with everything you have learned. These seven days will remove you from you comfort zone and enlighten your global business perspective. It is, without a doubt, one of the defining and most memorable periods of experiential learning during the program."
