Global Perspectives

As a required part of the International Business course curriculum, students participate in a global immersion experience, by visiting organizations abroad to gain first-hand knowledge of operations in the global marketplace. During the excursion, students are hosted at a variety of site visits across different industries and cities. The trip includes meetings and seminars with business leaders and provides insights on culture and society. As part of the international study, students are required to organize a team site visit on their own, to tailor the experience to their own interests and needs.

Past cohorts have traveled to Hong Kong, China, and Japan. The most recent cohort traveled to Shanghai, and Hong Kong with an optional cultural excursion to Beijing.

The exact week of travel is announced during the program.  The destination is determined by the International Business course instructor and the EMBA program. The cost of the international experience is not included in the tuition.  The international experience is open to current EMBA students only.


In Their Words

  • "While all of the aspects of the program exceeded my expectations, our trip to China was a highlight and profound learning experience. I could not have imagined how traveling with such a diverse group of whip-smart individuals who have become like family to me would add such an incredible dimension."
