The Washington State University Carson College of Business offers Executive MBA Online 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 2020, WSU Executive MBA Online students will have the opportunity to take an optional international experience in Beijing, Chongqing, Hangzhou, and Shanghai, China. There will be several visits to local businesses including Bimbo Baker Plant, D&S Consulting, ZBJ.com (China’s biggest cloud sourcing company), and Aliexpress. In addition to dynamic business and academic activities there will also be several cultural visits such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall and Chaotian Gate. 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.
