Students from nearly all of the Executive MBA programs at the University of Miami School of Business are participating in new international study opportunities made possible by the School's new partnerships with leading business schools around the world.
During a break between terms in July 2010, students from the School's main campus and Palm Beach campus Executive MBA programs, as well as those from its MBA for Working Professionals program spent a week at the Leon Recanati Business School at Tel Aviv University in Israel. The program consisted of two intensive courses taught by Tel Aviv University professors. The University of Miami executive students had the opportunity to meet, study, and network with executive students from a variety of other business schools and acquire direct international exposure.
"The classes were very informative and worthwhile and all of the participants were top-notch," said Amy Hudwaker, a student in the School's Executive MBA program. "It was well worth the time and travel and I would definitely do another one if given the opportunity. It was an experience I will never forget."
The School has expanded international study opportunities for Executive MBA and Full-Time MBA students by establishing partnerships with nearly ten schools in Latin America, Asia and Europe over the past year. During their 2010 spring break, Full-time MBA students participated in a trip to CENTRUM, business school of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, in Lima, Peru. They students participated in lectures on current international business issues from the business arena and toured a number of local firms.
