The global economy is undergoing a complete reorganization. Are you prepared for the opportunities? Will you be among those individuals who have the education, experience, and ability to fulfill the roles of leadership?
The MBA program at Laurier offers several ways to gain international experience. You may choose to immerse yourself in an entirely different culture to complete your MBA, or you may choose to participate in one of our International Study option courses. Either way, you will be gaining valuable experience that employers often look for.
The one-year International MBA at Laurier offers you an exciting and unique opportunity to study, learn, and work in different countries. You will participate in applied research consulting projects, one in each of the diverse economies, giving you exposure and real-life experience of working in each culture.
Alternatively, you may choose to complement your general MBA with international experience by participating in either the International Business study trip elective or attending an MBA summer school of your choosing. Both options will offer you course credit towards your MBA degree. This opportunity is open to all of our MBA candidates.
International Business Study Trip Elective
A two-week excursion that allows our students to learn how business operates in a foreign country. Students will participate in business meetings and company tours in the host country, as well as gain valuable insight into the differences in culture and the way in which these differences affect business operations in that country.
International Summer School
In this option, students have the opportunity to attend summer school in a foreign country. This is a great way for students to network with MBA students from all over the world. You may consider attending school at Essam in Denmark, Euromed in France, or you are welcome to choose a summer school option of your own.
Full-time One Year International MBA
With this new MBA program option, students will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to do business in three very different economies (a mature developed economy, a transitional economy, and a developing economy). This program prepares our students for careers anywhere in the world.
