Adding an international travel experience to your MBA makes you more competitive on the global job market. UNC Charlotte offers a variety of opportunities for students to consider as they seek to globalize their MBA program. Choose between week, semester or year-long experiences!
Global Travel Course (1 Week)
Students can choose to participate in an academic course that includes global travel. They will typically study a country or region prior to departure in order to familiarize themselves with the cultural, economic and political landscape of doing business there. Then, students will travel as a group to experience the country first hand as they participate in cultural activities and corporate visits arranged by the university.
In 2017, students visited Prague and Budapest for the travel component of MBAD 7090: Doing Business in Central Europe.
“Each company gave us a great perspective of what it is like to do business in central Europe and the differences in workforce priorities across different cultures. We were able to listen to business leaders and ask candid questions that were answered honestly and openly. The students on the trip, including myself, were able to gain a greater understanding of global business and an appreciation of other cultures.” - Nicole Scherff, MBA student
UNC Charlotte has partnerships with universities all over the world. Students are strongly encouraged to build a full semester or year-long study abroad experience into their program. Living abroad is really the best way for students to develop their language skills and to acclimate to the local culture. Most of our partner universities offer graduate courses in English which can be applied to your UNC Charlotte MBA. If you are interested in learning more about spending a semester abroad, contact the Office of Education Abroad to learn about deadlines and program requirements.
