International Immersion

The Villanova Executive MBA program includes a firsthand look at international business during an trip abroad in the spring of the program’s first year. This immersion is the culmination of the Global Management course and is led by the professor.

The experience is designed to bring to life the lessons learned in the classroom and to provide students with a broader understanding of the complexities of doing business in an emerging economy. During the trip, students visit local and multinational companies, tour facilities, meet with local representatives of foreign government and engage in detailed discussions of the country’s economy and current business climate. Time is also dedicated to the exploration of the country’s cultural attractions, along with some free time for individual exploration.

Recent immersion locations include:

  • Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa
  • Budapest, Hungary and Istanbul, Turkey
  •  Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam  and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil and Buenos Aires, Argentina
