International Opportunities for MBA Students

With a diverse student community (more than 30 percent international), a cross-cultural perspective on business issues is an inherent aspect of classroom learning at the Tepper School.

Outside of the classroom, Tepper School MBA students can also pursue opportunities to deepen their understanding of international business and explore other cultures. Through our global travel and study options, students may choose to participate in an intensive four-week global study experience or be part of a student-led international trek.

Global Study Capstone Course 

For MBA students interested in studying abroad, two opportunities take place during the program: a four-week experience either in Germany or in Hong Kong and mainland China. Students study with our partner schools in each country. Company tours and meetings with local business leaders expand students’ understanding of business issues beyond the U.S. context.

Germany Global Study capstone: Participating MBA students will study with our partner school, WHU, Otto Beisheim School of Management, in Koblenz, Germany. Students can also travel to Berlin as well as Bratislava, Slovakia and Prague, Czech Republic.

Hong Kong Global Study capstone: The Chinese University of Hong Kong Business School is our partner for this Global Study capstone. Most classes take place in Hong Kong. Students also have the opportunity to travel to Macau, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou in mainland China.
