Overview

International Study and Exchange Programs

An international perspective touches every aspect of the UC Davis MBA programs – from management and leadership to finance and marketing – and expands your ability to understand, examine and excel in today’s business environment. Our program integrates global issues into the curriculum and creates an environment where you learn from, and with, our students and professors from around the world.

International Study Practicum

Each year, our students create a live international business case study that culminates in a two-week study trip. You have tremendous input in shaping your international study practicum. You collaborate with a faculty advisor to select a country or region, identify industry sectors to explore, and contact executives with whom you will meet on the trip. The ten-week course provides a unique experience as students visit companies, factory sites, financial exchanges, and government agencies. Frequently, you meet with senior level executives throughout the course of your travels. While abroad, you learn firsthand about international trade, socioeconomic issues, critical industry sectors, and local business culture and practices. You return with a better understanding of both local issues and the global market – and a new awareness of the factors that define business success.

Students spend one quarter at one of these top universities, experiencing the culture and expanding their personal network.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
