Working Professional MBA
Globalizing Your MBA
The UF MBA Program offers opportunities for you to increase your global perspective. Regardless of your program choice, you will significantly increase your understanding of different cultures and their business practices through our curriculum.
UF Global Immersion Experiences (GIEs)
UF MBA students can register for a 2-credit course that is a 7-10 day experience abroad. The cornerstone of each GIE is local company visits where you learn about the company's practices and unique environment. Participants will also have opportunities to network with local students and experience cultural activities. The UF MBA Program focuses the GIEs in the world's expanding and developing markets. Recent destinations have include Argentina, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Japan and China.
Led by experienced faculty and staff, on these trips you will:
- Strengthen your understanding of global business by meeting with business executives from various industries.
- Learn the inner-workings of international companies in the country where they operate.
- Meet with scholars who study the region's economy and political climate of the country.
- Experience cultural highlights of the country you visit, such as the Great Wall in China and the mosques in the U.A.E.
GIEs are open to all students enrolled in the program. Students in the Working Professional Two-Year and One-Year programs can substitute a GIE as their elective. For Executive MBA students, a GIE is included with your program.
