​Short-Term International Practicums

Apply your business expertise to global settings.

At USD, we believe international consulting is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for a career in a global business environment. You'll have the opportunity to apply the business concepts and hands-on training you've learned in class to real-world business situations abroad.

The international business practicum is a field-based, short-term consulting project for an organization in another country to address a current and significant problem which they have identified. In some cases, your project team might include other USD business school students and graduate business students from a university in another country.

We typically organize these projects in January (between the regular semesters) and locations vary each year. In the last few years, students have consulted in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (in cooperation with COPPEAD Graduate School of Business); Bangkok, Thailand; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Shanghai, China; Singapore; Munich, Germany; Delhi, India (in cooperation with IMT Ghaziabad) and Accra, Ghana.
