We'll show you global.
Amplify global expertise (and your value in the marketplace) with a nine-day international residency. Join classmates for several days each in two European cities, in different countries with different cultures. During the residency, you’ll meet with local executives and develop business solutions for multinational corporations.
The global residency is the culmination of the International Business course and focuses on contextual intelligence. While the course itself covers a diverse range of countries, including BRIC, the residency functions as a case study. It offers students access to several significant markets and economies – we maximize time by splitting the residency between two or more locations within Europe.
