    Graduate Students

    Prepare for a global career by globalizing your education. Each year, an increasing number of Fisher MBAs join multinational organizations that consider a global mindset a critical and valuable employee asset. Many of those same employers expect that the MBAs they hire will spend at least some of their professional lives working and living outside of the USA or their home countries. At the Office of Global Business (OGB), we help you prepare yourself for that global expectation by offering a variety of international opportunities that will challenge and stimulate you while teaching you to "lead from a global perspective".
