Step 1 of 2


Many online MBA programs address international markets in books. The Carson College of Business gives you the opportunity to take your education a step further. Go beyond the coursework and explore international markets firsthand.

You will be given a chance to visit various companies and learn from local professors and experts. This is also a great chance to meet your classmates in person and network with professionals outside the United States. The international field study can help you build the confidence to venture into overseas markets.

In June 2024, WSU Online MBA students will have the opportunity to take an optional international experience to Hanoi, Vietnam and Manila, Philippines. A wide range of topics specific to these cities will be covered. In addition to dynamic business and academic activities, there will be opportunities for tours to visit cultural landmarks. 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 summer 1 Special Projects or Independent Study (IBUS 600) elective course. This one credit course will not count towards graduating credits but an opportunity for experiential learning and to connect with your fellow Online MBA students. Program fees will cover hotel, some meals, all in country transportation, and the program itself.

  • Locations: Hanoi, Vietnam and Manila, Philippines
  • Dates: June 22nd – June 30th, 2024

"In just over a week’s time, we attended a variety of fascinating lectures at a local university, toured the beautiful Casa Blanca wine region, and visited Chilean companies from several diverse industries. As amazing as all of this was, for me the best part was being lucky enough to share these experiences with the most interesting, fun-loving, smart, and professionally diverse group of MBA students who I now call my friends for life. My MBA experience was truly enhanced by having gone on this trip and I would highly recommend a field study to anyone in the MBA program.”
