Want an education that truly sets you apart from the competition? Consider an MBA with global opportunities. According to the QS Global Employer Survey Report, more than 80% of employers stated they actively sought graduates who had studied abroad.
The Frank G. Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University offers several opportunities for students to develop a deeper understanding of business and finance through international experiential learning programs.
During Hofstra University’s first summer session, the Department of Marketing and International Business offers study abroad programs in China for undergraduate and graduate students. The courses include three weeks of classes on Hofstra University’s Long Island campus and online instruction, as well as two weeks travel in China.
In China, you can immerse yourself in one of the oldest and richest cultures in the world, all while learning Chinese customs and traditions that will help you navigate the complexities of a country that is home to 1.3 billion people. You will also have the opportunity to study global business and finance among many of China’s multinational corporations.
Both graduate and undergraduate students studying all disciplines learn about the global economy, analyzing the political, social, technological, environmental and legal factors facing small businesses. They then put their skills to practice and work with global entrepreneurs abroad during spring break to help develop practical solutions to their business problems. Students examine the cultural context and challenges these entrepreneurs face both globally and domestically.
Students in this class have traveled to South Africa, Israel, Silicon Valley, Ireland and South Korea. In 2020, the class will be going to Ghana.
As business becomes increasingly global, an international experience is an essential component of business education, and the Zarb School is committed to providing these types of opportunities to its students.
