Studying the effects of cultural influences on business is one thing; seeing them in action is another. Rollins MBA students experience international business first-hand by applying classroom learning to real-world challenges through the following programs:
Global Research and Study Project
This experiential learning course focuses on the challenges and opportunities of doing business in a particular country or region. It features travel overseas as a group, accompanied by the instructor, to gain practical experience in conducting business abroad.
Global Consulting Projects
Some students may also participate in Global Consulting projects. Each Global Consulting project includes a one-week trip abroad to conduct field research and gain a direct understanding of the business and cultural aspects of the market.
International Exchange Programs
Early Advantage MBA students who start the program in August have the opportunity to study with MBA students from around the world at either EM Lyon in France or at East China University of Science and Technology in Shanghai. These international exchange programs run approximately four weeks at the beginning of the summer break, which allows students time to return and complete a summer internship.
Global Sustainability: Business and the Environment
This course focuses on the principles and practices of environmentally-sensitive “green” business. Students learn how businesses can innovatively enhance profits through careful stewardship of the environment.
Business in Emerging Markets
This course gives students an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in an emerging market and includes a one-week field trip overseas.
Doing Business in Latin America
This one-week course is held at IPADE Business School in Mexico City and provides Rollins MBA students an opportunity to join MBA students from around the world to study Mexico’s tourism industry.
Executive MBA Week at IPADE
Professional MBA and Executive MBA students can join more than 500 executives from nine business schools and eight different countries who gather at IPADE in Mexico City each year for Executive MBA week to share experiences, compare points of view and enrich their understanding of social responsibility and business.
