International Trip

2011 George Fox University MBA international trip to China

What is one of many distinctions that sets the George Fox MBA apart? The opportunity to take your business skills abroad.

Each year, George Fox MBA students take part in an international residency class in Panama, Asia or Europe. Both the Part-Time MBA and One-Year MBA programs offer this international study experience.

Spanning the Globe

Since the program’s inception in 2004, more than 300 George Fox business graduate students have made week-long trips to locales around the world. The trips are offered through a required MBA course, Global Environment, which explores globalization and international business.

Students on these trips visit a variety of organizations from the financial, manufacturing, technology and services sectors. Participants complete reading and research assignments prior to traveling and make weekly journal entries before and after the trip, as well as daily entries while there in order to retain what they learn. After the trip, participants complete a reflection paper that compares what they experienced to the research they were able to conduct prior to the visit.
