Global Learning Based on Global Experiences

As a Wisconsin MBA student, you will have the opportunity to build cross-cultural awareness and experience firsthand how global business is conducted.

Your global learning experience will include a team project with actual deliverables for a multinational corporation or a company based within your country of travel. The project includes intensive team preparation before you travel, on-site consultations with key leaders within the company, and a final presentation of your team’s recommendations.

Recent global learning experiences have brought Wisconsin MBA students to locations such as Brazil, Panama, Peru, Ireland, South Africa, and Chile. Many company partners in these countries are so impressed with the work of Wisconsin MBA students that they want to generate additional projects for future visits.

Your exposure to global perspectives is also enhanced by your learning community, which unites students, faculty, and staff from locations around the globe. The small cohort size of the Wisconsin MBA Program ensures that you will study, collaborate, and socialize with this diverse group of motivated, career-focused individuals.

“The trip to Brazil was an excellent opportunity to get a global perspective on brand management. We visited several consumer packaged goods companies, including SC Johnson, where we did a case study focusing on targeting different segments of consumers throughout Brazil. The global trip was an astounding success and is definitely an experience I will never forget! The trip delivered professional learnings that I will take with me throughout my career in brand management, and it also provided an opportunity to grow on a personal level.”
