International Immersion

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

The experience brings lessons from the classroom to life, including the complexities of doing business in an emerging economy. During the trip, 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 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
