International Field Study


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 while earning credit toward graduation.

In July 2020, WSU Online MBA students will have the opportunity to take an optional international experience in Prague. A wide range of topics specific to this city 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 2 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.


“It is rewarding to talk with people from different parts of the world to get their perspectives on issues that affect all of us. … Being exposed to their perspective helps broaden your horizons and gives you a better understanding of how issues affect different parts of the world.”
Josiah Thompson Online MBA, Class of 2015
