Global Opportunities

What better way to explore global business than to experience it first-hand?  More than half of USD MBA students take advantage of one of the great opportunities listed below, coordinated by the Ahlers Center for International Business.

International Consulting Practicums

Over half of University of San Diego MBA students take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad or complete an international consulting project. Students apply international business concepts in real-world situations through a five to seven day intensive international consulting project. In January 2014 students participated in more than ten consulting projects across the globe in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Shanghai, China; and the Dominican Republic.

Short-term Study Abroad Opportunities

Students may participate in courses that range from one to three weeks in various locations around the world during USD's January Intersession and Summer Sessions to gain insight into international  business practices, organizations and strategies.

Semester Exchange Programs

Students are welcome to spend a semester or more abroad with our exchange partners in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America.

International Internships

MBA Career Services and the Ahlers Center for International Business work together to generate international internship and funding opportunities for San Diego MBA students.

International Dual Degree Programs

MBA students may enroll in a dual degree program in which they take 30 units of coursework at USD and complete their remaining requirements at one of our partnering institutions to complete two master's degrees in two years.
