An integral component of the EMBA program is to participate in an international study program, which is designed to allow students to gain an understanding of global business cultural practices and acquire direct international experience in foreign countries. The international study program is connected with course BA 709: Global Financial Environment. As part of this course, each cohort will visit an international destination in order to provide a historical, political, economic, and social/cultural overview of that particular region.
EMBA has provided me with skills necessary to contribute more to the success of my company. As the Director of Logistics for Calimax in Tijuana, I found the international portion of the program to be particularly relevant and useful in my professional development. I particularly enjoyed the trip to China and Thailand which complemented the international economics portion of the program. But personally, the best part of the program was the interaction with the other students and faculty.
