Other Programs: http://bus.wisc.edu/mba/academics-and-programs/international-trips 1. Wisconsin MBA Global Business Program 2014: You may want to consider this winter break for-credit study abroad opportunity, or IB 765 2-credit course. As part of this for-credit study abroad trip, Wisconsin MBA students travel to a global destination (based in large part by student preference and a compelling case for a global presence in the world economy) for an eight-day immersion. The experience includes corporate site visits, cultural visits, and meetings with local business professionals. Travel for this course occurs during January. 2. Global Business Project (GBP): The Global Business Project offers students the chance to develop virtual teamwork skills as they are matched with team members from other leading U.S. business schools and given a project for a client company in a foreign country. With faculty guidance, the students complete their projects as part of a semester-long, three-credit course. The course culminates with an in-country experience in which the teams gather additional information and present their solutions to the business challenge they were given. Travel for this course occurs in spring at the conclusion of the semester. Expenses: The costs of these experiences are shared by the participating students and the Wisconsin School of Business (and, in the case of the Global Business Project, by a U.S. Department of Education grant). Costs are kept low to try to encourage as many students as possible to take advantage of these courses. Discover your option and the requirements below.
