Open your eyes to the world.

While you’ll find the coursework rigorous and stimulating, much of the most beneficial learning you’ll do as an EMBA student will be outside the classroom. You’ll gain an invaluable global perspective—and a rich appreciation for other cultures and points-of-view.

Global EMBA Residency

The Global EMBA program includes an international residency to experience how business in done outside the United States. National Security andCritical Infrastructure EMBA students have the option to add the global residency (at an additional cost).

Global Perspective

Today the Washington, D.C., area is home to more than 1,000 international firms from 50 countries. And the opportunities don't end at our front door. Global opportunities abound outside of the U.S. for business and career opportunities.

Mason's Executive MBA program prepares graduates to embrace cultural differences by providing you with first-hand global experience. No matter how good the classroom curriculum, there's nothing like the first-hand experience of visiting a different country and experiencing the different ways to conduct business. Embracing another culture means respecting others' viewpoints and working within the boundaries of those cultures.

Our dynamic global residencies to international business capitals transform you into a true global business leader. Intensive and pragmatic, these residencies expose you to critical topics in international business management, regulation and entrepreneurship. They also include hands-on projects to illuminate management challenges in three of the world's major business and financial centers.

You’ll visit Asia or Europe (or another hot-spot for conducting business in the world) for a 10-day residency. These include faculty presentations from local universities, site visits to local companies, presentations from senior managers and directors, and time for cultural excursions.
