We believe a rigorous MBA program can and should be eye-opening on many levels. At Simon, you will be encouraged to explore and focus as never before – to gain a more profound understanding of what business means in the world, the leader you can be, and the impact you can make.

Part of expanding your understanding of the global business marketplace is to see it up close. To help you do that, in the winter term of the second year of the MBA program you may study abroad in the following locations:

  • Finland: Aalto – Helsinki
  • Germany: WHU – Düsseldorf
  • Japan: GSIM – Minamiuonuma
  • Mexico: IPADE – Mexico City

Prior to pursuing an international exchange program, you will develop strategic academic objectives and a required job search plan to help you maximize your experience on a personal and professional level. You will also have the opportunity to network in a new culture and make lasting connections as you embark on your career.

Several students from the MBA Class of 2018 are just returning from their time abroad in Germany, and one of our 2017 MBA graduates, Aileen Hayman, business excellence consultant at Nationwide Insurance, reflected on her time in Japan last winter:

“My three months abroad broadened my perspective, enriched my MBA education, and expanded the skill set that I apply in my career today. With so few MBA programs offering international exchange opportunities, Simon Business School leverages it to create a well-rounded and truly valuable curriculum.”
