Global Research Practicum

Credits: 3


The Katz Global Research Practicum (GRP) is a three-credit course with a study abroad component. The GRP exposes Katz MBA, MAcc and MS students to international business and current issues affecting the global marketplace. During your time abroad, you will visit companies, engage with executives and Pitt alumni, conduct field research, and experience international culture.  

The main objectives of the program are to challenge you as a business student to consider issues from a global perspective and expose you to actual business environments abroad.

Deliverables from the practicum include a team research project. While abroad, you will explore a number of selected organizations and companies in the host country, learning more about current business practices and issues.  

The program is open to all Katz MBA students and MS students in Accounting, MIS and Supply Chain, and other Pitt graduate students.
