Study Abroad/IFS

This 3-credit course is designed to give students intense exposure to the global business environment by immersing them in the business practices or culture of a country or region outside of the U.S. The course is taught primarily in the country or region of interest and involves a mix of classes, company site visits, and cultural activities.

In order to understand business today, you need to be familiar with global business. The global market is a reality. Dramatic innovations in communication, information, and transportation technologies have shrunk the globe and have led towards a single market. In every industry, firms that once dominated national markets find themselves players in a larger and more competitive global marketplace. Immerse yourself in these important international issues with Northeastern University’s D'Amore-McKim School of Business and attend one of our international summer programs.

The D'Amore-McKim MBA international summer programs are designed to give you knowledge in and new perspectives regarding international business. They will help you develop critical skills necessary to compete and succeed in the global market. All courses involve a multinational faculty and are taught in English. Each program offers a unique opportunity to explore business outside the traditional classroom boundaries and to provide a unique addition to your resume.

To help you acquire a deeper understanding of the exciting changes taking place across the globe, academic coursework during the Spring 2016 semester will be augmented with a 10 day trip encompassing a variety of activities including talks by guest speakers; meetings with regional officials; a visit to a local university; and visits to local, national and multinational firms.
