All MBA students participate in a Global Business Experience (GBE) course. By pairing student teams with global companies to consult on real world issues, students are empowered to more fully understand how business is conducted around the world. Projects cover a variety of functional business areas such as market entry, market development, communications, innovation strategy, competitive strategy, and global growth strategy. As part of the course, students have the opportunity to travel abroad for client presentations. Full-time MBA students have traveled to places such as Spain, Germany, Chile, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Morocco, and beyond.
