The Washington State University Carson College of Business offers online Executive MBA students the opportunity to travel abroad for a ten-day residency—yet another feature that distinguishes the WSU program from so many other Executive MBA programs.
In April 2019, WSU Executive MBA Online students will have the opportunity to take an optional international experience in Beijing, Dalian, Hangzhou, and Shanghai, China. There will be several visits to local businesses including the Neusoft Group (China’s biggest software industry solution company), Geeley Automobile and Alibaba. In addition to dynamic business and academic activities there will also be several cultural visits such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall. Most evenings will be free so that students can explore the cities and be immersed in the local culture.
The optional international field study trip will be part of the spring 3 International Program (IBUS 600) elective course. Program fees will cover hotel, some meals, all in country transportation, and the program itself.
