In the Executive MBA, you will engage in a unique international immersion that brings classroom discussion to life with exposure to two global economies.

Held during the spring of your first year, the EMBA program includes a 10-day immersion overseas to experience both a developing and a developed economy. You will 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 free time for individual sightseeing.

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
