International Experience

At the Carlson School, we approach business education from a global perspective. International study is part of our culture. In a world increasingly defined by a global economy, we prepare students by exploring business issues in an international context.

We have built strategic relationships with corporate partners and leading universities world-wide. Our flexible education abroad programs can take both full-time and part-time students to other countries for a few weeks or an entire semester. An international experience helps you develop a deeper understanding of contemporary business issues, broadens your perspective, and prepares you to make better strategic business decisions.
