One of our program core values is “Global Citizenship.” We believe that organizations today are interdependent and mutually accountable to local, national, and global communities. As a result, we believe in interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and interfaith engagement. To that end, a global perspective is important for today’s business and organizational leaders. This one-week international residency not only provides students with a global perspective but also a context and on-going case study for the entire MBA curriculum. In addition, it is also a resume enhancing hands-on experience that provides perspective for student’s day-to-day work and their development as leaders in their organization.
Some students have used the international residency as a launching point for further travel or holiday time in the same location or region, and this may include family members or friends. Students who take opportunity to extend their experience for personal reasons should plan for their family/friend to arrive on location no earlier than the departure day of the residency.
