The Tepper MBA Global Study experience provides a range of options for international management opportunities.With a diverse student community (nearly 30 percent international) comprised of more than 35 different countries, a cross-cultural perspective on business issues is an inherent aspect of classroom learning. Outside the classroom, students have the opportunity for flexible, tailored international treks or an intensive experience that spans two mini-semesters.
GLOBAL TREKS (JANUARY AND/OR MARCH)
MBA students in the full-time and part-time programs may participate in international treks that feature corporate and cultural highlights intended to further students’ exposure to international management practice and trends.
The Global Treks may occur between the fall and spring semesters or during spring break. The treks often provide social networking opportunities with students, local executives, alumni and faculty. Recent Global Trek regions include:
- Latin America
- South Africa
TRANSITIONAL ECONOMIES STUDY ABROAD (MARCH AND APRIL)
Our European transitional economies study abroad program is based in Koblenz, Germany, and partners with The Otto Beisheim School of Management (WHU). At WHU, Tepper students will learn about the historical, political and economic bases of the European Union (EU). In addition, the specific areas of finance, operations, marketing, and entrepreneurship are examined within the context of the EU. WHU coordinates the program in various cities by integrating university coursework with corporate and government visits in each city. Tepper MBA alumni in these cities will meet with Tepper MBA students during the visits at which panels and social events are organized.
