International Experience

EMBA International Business Experience

A highlight of the Executive MBA program at Kent State is the 10-day international business experience. Countries previously visited include Brazil, China, Italy and Vietnam among others.

The International Business trip is a one-hour credit course in which each EMBA cohort has the opportunity to travel abroad under the leadership of faculty members. The EMBA program cost includes the 10-day International Business Trip (airfare, hotel accommodations and most meals).

The International Business Trip, typically taken during the month of May in the first year of the program, is a unique learning experience in which students are exposed firsthand to the country’s culture and te business practices of companies that operate internationally.

International topics are integrated into many of the courses in the curriculum. In addition, there is a course in International Business that is taken the semester before the international trip.

The International Business trip is a one-hour credit course in which each EMBA cohort has the opportunity to travel abroad under the leadership of faculty members. The trip typically takes place during the month of May in the first year of the program and lasts approximately 12 days. It is a unique learning experience in which students are exposed firsthand to the country’s culture and the business practices of companies that operate internationally.


What Will You Do During the Trip?

During the trip, students meet with business leaders, have tours of selected businesses, meet with the US Embassy, visit a local university in the country and have free time to explore the culture on your own. It has proven to be not only a great learning experience, but also to be most students’ favorite part of the program. The destination each year is based upon events taking place in the domestic and global economy.

Past trips have included Ireland, Austria/Greece, Mexico, Chile, Switzerland/Belgium, Czech Republic/Dresden and China. We are planning on a trip to South America in the near future.
