In addition to a seminar in comparative international management, students attend an international group study tour. Prior to the trip, students will learn about the history, culture, politics, and economics of a region. The trip will involve company visits as well as visiting cultural sites. Students will have the opportunity to meet with local business leaders, government officials and academic experts in the region. Students also have the opportunity to travel through the region before or after the main trip.
The Texas MBA program office makes the arrangements and financial deposits for the international trips based on 100% attendance. Should a student be scheduled for a particular trip and then cancel, that student will be responsible for any costs incurred on his or her behalf. Students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from the designated city of the trip. Should you have any issues that could impact your ability to travel, please immediately consult with the program office. The international trip is a course and, as such, attendance and participation in all scheduled events is mandatory.
