Studying Abroad Inspires Alum to Switch Careers
Kelly Jorgensen, '12 MBA, discovered her true calling studying abroad in India.
Global Enrichment Programs
These elective, intensive study abroad programs, allow you to explore many facets of a key business topic, expanding on a foundation started here at the Carlson School and continued abroad. Programs are taught entirely in English and offered between academic semesters. Past students have visited local and multinational firms in diverse locations such as the UK and India, while others have completed consulting projects for companies including 3M, Thomson Reuters, and Lenovo. Graduate Fellowships are available for Global Enrichment sessions, which have taken students to China, Austria, Poland, Costa Rica and beyond.
Global Immersion Programs
Global immersion programs give students the chance to dive deeply into a culture and study alongside other international students at partner universities throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania. All courses are taught in English, and you'll find a range of classes from both the host university's full catalog and more specialized business offerings. For more detailed information, please see the Education Abroad page. Graduate Fellowships are available for these unique education experiences in China, Belgium, Costa Rica, and more.
