Study Abroad for MBA Students

Study Abroad

To better prepare you to compete in the global marketplace, the UNCG MBA offers several opportunities to experience business in foreign cultures. Study abroad improves communication skills, enriches cultural understanding and increases self-confidence and adaptability. If you are interested in developing your international business skills, you may participate in one of the MBA Program’s one-week courses abroad offered in the Spring, or may opt for a more significant international experience by studying for a semester at one of the Bryan School’s partner institutions abroad.

MBA 745: Experience Business Abroad

Because it can be difficult to devote an entire semester to study abroad, the MBA program has developed MBA 745: Experience Business Abroad, which is designed to expose you to foreign business practices and cultures. This popular one-week course is a faculty-led trip abroad to tour cultural, business and governmental sites as well as to attend lectures and roundtable discussions with local business leaders and scholars. MBA 745 takes place over Spring Break, is a 3 credit hour course, and is open to all graduate-level students.
