The Tepper MBA global study experience provides a range of options for international management opportunities. With a diverse student community (nearly 30% international) comprised of more than 35 different countries, a global perspective on business issues is an inherent aspect of classroom learning. Outside the classroom, students have the opportunity for flexible, tailored international trips or an intensive experience that spans two mini-semesters.
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. Recent Global Trek regions include: China, Dubai, India, Latin America, and South Africa. The treks often provide social networking opportunities with students, local executives, alumni and faculty.
There is a study abroad program based in Koblenz, Germany, partnering 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.
