International Business Practicum
The MBAE program includes an international business practicum in the form of a weeklong study abroad. The practicum is field-based and involves the completion of a mini project about a firm in the country visited. The project addresses a current and significant problem identified by the foreign firm during a site visit. Students work in teams, effectively demonstrating interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as communication abilities appropriate in a collaborative business setting. By this arrangement, students gain a valuable exposure in the global world of international business, which also includes a cultural immersion during the trip.
