Global Learning

PassportExpand Your Horizons

Well-designed and highly focused short-term global experience-based learning (EBL) is meaningful and results in gaining valuable transferable skills, such as critical thinking, leadership, flexibility, and global mindset. Katz students have the opportunity to gain these skills through impactful global experience-based learning opportunities offered by the Katz School.

There are three Katz global EBL flagship programs. Additionally, students have access to Katz partnership programs and university wide study abroad opportunities on an individual basis. These programs are provided through the support of the International Business Center.

Global Research Practicum

Gain exposure to international business and current issues affecting the global marketplace through our Global Research Practicum, a three-credit course with a study abroad component.

Global Issues Workshops

Conduct in-depth international business research here and travel abroad to conduct field research and meet with industry and organization experts through one of Katz's Global Issues Workshops.

Global Consulting Projects

In a Global Consulting Project, a team of Katz students travel abroad to one or more international locations to provide actionable recommendations for a concrete and specific international organizational challenge.

Partner Programs

Incorporate short-term study abroad as part of your MBA experience by participating in one of our partnerships with various international programs.
