Each year, Saunders College of Business Executive MBA students participate in an eight to ten day international seminar overseas. Each cohort travels to a new destination to explore the international business climate.
Students experience culture and tour various companies - typically businesses who epitomize the business climate or conditions of that specific country.
Before departure, students analyze different companies’ challenges and opportunities, and conduct research on the industry. “Throughout the trip students learn the challenges of doing business in that country and the specific implications for their consulting firm,” said Jeff Davis, Associate Director of EMBA programs.
“Students combine their learning from International Business, primary and secondary research and their experiences within the country," Davis continued. "Back home, at the end of the semester, they present their solutions in a paper and presentation to their assigned company’s leadership.”
