International Experience

EMBA International Business Experience

A highlight of the Executive MBA program at Kent State is the international business experience 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 a faculty member. The EMBA program cost includes the International Business Experience Trip (airfare, hotel accommodations and most meals).

The International Business Experience Trip 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.

In order to prepare for the experience, international topics are integrated into many of the courses in the curriculum.

What Will You Do During the Trip?

During the trip, students meet with business leaders, tour selected businesses, work with companies to develop business strategies and explore. 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 Italy, Brazil, Vietnam, Ireland, Austria/Greece, Mexico, Chile, Switzerland/Belgium, Czech Republic/Dresden and China.
