Business today is Global. Simply put, the marketplace of the past is no longer within the boundaries of an individual country.

Commerce has become a global landscape, with real time transactions and business conducted all over the globe. With the effects of internationalization, professionals today must not only posses the business acumen and cross-functional skill set to differentiate themselves, but they must also be confident in fast-paced decision making, posses the knowhow to create growth and lead change, but do so with individuals and companies all around the globe.

The School of Business at Clarkson embraces the business of today, prepares students for the business of tomorrow, and has established a new Global MBA, as an extension from our successful One-Year MBA program. Below is the academic structure of how you can obtain global business training first hand by spending an entire semester abroad at one of our partnering institutions. Live and learn in Australia, China or France at one of the most respected business schools in their country:

Spending a semester studying abroad in Bordeaux, France was a once in a lifetime opportunity. In a business environment that is becoming increasingly global, this program allowed me to gain some very valuable first hand international experience while completing my studies. Working amongst the next generation of business professionals from all over the world, my eyes were opened to global management insight that could not have been acquired in any other program. By immersing myself in a foreign culture my eyes were opened to a whole new world of business opportunities; opportunities I never knew existed. I would highly recommend this program to any prospective MBA student that wants to learn about the future of the global business environment, gain valuable international experience and make them self an attractive candidate for future employers.
