International Business Study Trip Elective

BU669+: International Business elective is a two-week study trip that allows you to earn an elective course credit while learning how businesses operate in a foreign country. Students will participate in business meetings and company tours in the host country. They will also gain valuable insight into the differences in culture and how these differences affect business operations in that country.

The study trip occurs in a different country each year and always takes place during the winter term. Previous destinations have included South Africa, Spain, India, Turkey, Germany and China to name a few.

International Summer School

During the spring term, you have the opportunity to attend summer school in a foreign country for an elective credit. This is a great opportunity for students to network with fellow MBA candidates from all over the world. You may attend the European Summer School in Advanced Management in Scotland, or you are welcome to apply to attend an approved, accredited summer school destination from Laurier International. An application process is required for this option, contact the MBA Office for specific details.
