Who says going back to school needs to keep you in one place? Going for your MBA can be one of the most exciting and, yes, interesting times of your life—you just need to choose the right program.
In the age of social media, instant access to technology, and global news, it is important to pay attention to the many ways that the world works together when you start thinking about business interests. Even if you plan on staying close to home, chances are that once you start working your way up the corporate ladder, you’ll only find increased communication with offices across the globe.
All business is international business, so when you are working on earning your business degree it makes sense to take into account the ways that business works in different areas of the world. This is why so many MBA programs incorporate amazing travel opportunities for students: so that you can learn firsthand the ways in which business happens across the globe.
Study abroad opportunities with Georgia College can be taken as an additional option for short-term study while working towards your online MBA degree. Make sure to speak with your academic advisor for more insight and information. If you want to reach out and see what else the world has to offer, then you might want to consider traveling with an MBA partner program.
Here are a few of the most interesting MBA study abroad programs:
- Capstone WorldStride Programs: Capstone has partnerships with study abroad programs in more than 30 locations across the globe. You can partner with this organization, choose your destination, and have credits transfer into your existing MBA program.
- Thunderbird Global Experience: Thunderbird is a study exchange program, meaning that it serves students from around the world who are interested in learning more about how business works on the other side of the globe. Thunderbird offers MBA tailored experiences that vary in length. You can take a short trip for language exposure, a small learning traveling expedition during the summer or winter break, or spend an entire semester abroad as part of the exchange program.
- Pepperdine Study Abroad Program: Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management is a travel destination on its own, overlooking the amazing Pacific Malibu, but the program offers a lot more than just the singular campus. Pepperdine has campuses in Asia, Europe and South America so that you can easily take a semester abroad without having to adjust to a new campus culture.
Take advantage of studying abroad as an extension to your current plan of study! Students who study abroad always come back with a new perspective and a new sense of drive and motivation.
