The Carlson Global Institute's Education Abroad offerings are created to meet the needs of Full-Time MBA students looking to complete their International Experience.

There are several ways you can complete your International Experience:

  • Participate in a Full-Time MBA cohort program in January. These programs are led by Carlson faculty and only accept Full-Time MBA students.*
  • Participate in a Global Enrichment program in January, May/June or Summer. Carlson Education Abroad offers faculty-led short-term programs that are paired with a B term course in the fall or spring semester, or a “Global Business Practicum” model that partners with a multinational corporation and MBA students in another country to complete a business project designed by the sponsoring corporation.
  • Complete a semester abroad, partial-semester or summer program through Carlson Education Abroad’s “Global Immersion” offerings.

We recommend that students speak with an Education Abroad Adviser prior to applying to a program to discuss financial aid & scholarships, health & safety, and the program details. Students may attend walk-in advising hours from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday during the academic year or schedule an appointment by emailing

*Cohort programs may allow Part-Time MBA students if the minimum enrollment is not met by the priority deadline.
