Graduate students studying in Guangzhou

The Carlson Global Institute's Education Abroad offerings are created to meet the needs of graduate students completing their International Experience.

There are several ways you can complete your International Experience:

Global Enrichment Programs
  • January - Classes in the Fall B Term, followed by two weeks abroad in January.
  • May/June - Classes in the Spring B term, followed by two weeks abroad immediately after Carlson School commencement in May.
  • Summer - Classes in June/July, followed by two weeks abroad in July. 
Global Immersion Programs
  • Semester-length exchange where students "exchange" places with a student at a partner university. These programs offer courses in English at top-ranked business schools around the world. Language skills may be required for certain locations.
  • Partial Semesters, where students take one module of courses in English at top-ranked business schools around the world.
  • Summer Programs -three to six weeks, June through August, at some of the same top-ranked business schools as our semester-length programs.
  • Full-Time MBA students can also participate in a Full-Time MBA cohort program in January. These programs are led by Carlson faculty and only accept Full-Time MBA students.*

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

    We recommend that students speak with an Education Abroad adviser prior to applying to a program, to discuss program details, financial aid & scholarships, and health & safety. Walk-in advising is available from 1-4 p.m. Monday-Thursday during the academic year, and by appointment until 5:30 p.m. during the academic year and during summer and academic breaks.
