The global learning experience, a required component of the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program, increases your understanding of today’s complex international business environment.

The highlight of the global education experience is a 10-day, international trip conducted in June of the second year. Through in-country site visits with senior leaders of multinational and domestic businesses, trade groups, and government ministries, students learn how to apply key business concepts of a globalized economy and the complexities of working abroad.

Integrated Global Learning

The global learning experience is fully integrated into the curriculum. This accelerates your preparation for the complexities and opportunities of international business.

In pre-departure classes, students collaborate with their teams to research and analyze companies for the in-country site visits. Upon return, classroom briefings leverage the in-country experience to further enhance global learning.

Each cohort has a distinctive, shared global learning experience. Traveling abroad as a group provides a unique outlook on intercultural communication and a broader world view.

“The global learning experience provided a firsthand opportunity to experience not only specific business operations within the selected country, but also the many customs and cultural differences that greatly influence the identities of the residents. When working internationally, understanding the people and culture is just as important as the business that is being conducted. There is no better way to learn than to be immersed in it.”
