Global Residency: A Quantum Leap

You’ll find the coursework rigorous and stimulating, but some of the best learning will take place miles from the Mason campus—in another part of the globe. An integral part of the Mason MBA is our Global Residency Program.

The Global Residency: MBA 795 - Global Business Perspectives

Your Mason MBA is designed to assist you in leading organizations in the competitive global arena. Each component of the program explores the role of management in the complex global economy and examines the risks and opportunities inherent in global commerce.

This commitment is underscored by the global residency (MBA 795 - Global Business Perspectives). This required three-credit course includes a week-long international study tour led by an MBA professor. You meet business and government leaders, participate in seminars, meet professors and MBA students from other universities, and visit local and/or multi-national companies.

The global residency is offered at the completion of the core curriculum, before you begin your electives and areas of concentration. this scheduling enables you to integrate what you have learned from the global experience into your elective courses. While venues change with the world economy, past residencies include Chile, China, Central Europe, and Western Europe. Some travel costs, such as lodging, meals and ground transportation, are included in your tuition. Students are responsible for airfare to and from the country.
