The MBA program at Niagara University has an on-going commitment to internationalize its curriculum. One way that this commitment is demonstrated is through its study abroad programs. Each summer, the MBA Program offers an overseas opportunity for its students in a variety of locations such as London, England, Berlin, Germany and Stockholm/Riga. Moreover, these are not conventional study abroad programs that require you to spend the summer in Europe; rather, they are organized to allow the working student to participate.
Summer 2010, our trip will be taking us to China! The trip is 12-14 days with the start date on May 29. We will visit about 20 companies in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Students are encouraged to bring their business cards and resumes for networking purposes. There will be some scheduled free time to tour the cities. Only students who have taken MGT 682 Business in China will be eligible to go on the China study abroad trip.Â More details to come at a later date.
These programs are made as affordable as possible to allow each and every student the opportunity to participate. The low cost of the program allows spouses and guests to affordably accompany students on this excursion. Keep in mind also, that a participating student would need only seven or eight days of vacation time from work. Many alumni accompany us on these excursions. The affordable nature of the MBA Study Abroad program has allowed the Niagara program to be one of the national leaders in student participation rates.
