At Carlson, we are continuously reminded of the world outside of our classroom. Through Enterprise projects or opportunities to consult for non-profits, we are constantly pushed to think bigger, better and beyond just the theoretical. Consequently, Carlson requires all its full-time MBA candidates to include a global business perspective into their studies.  For many, this requirement is fulfilled by travel and study outside of the classroom…and outside of the country. This year, we had the opportunity to travel to Oman and the UAE, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Scandinavia, Ireland and my personal selection: India.
