Simon MBA graduates enter the workforce ready to make a positive impact from day one. Much of that is because of our world-class curriculum. But it’s also due to the premium we place on experiential learning.
In addition to a required project-based consulting course, you may also choose additional elective courses. These include immersive experiences abroad, and a professional skill-building program to prepare for your future career.
Every Simon MBA study team completes a project-based course in which you and a team will apply what you are learning in the classroom in a real-world setting. This will provide you with concrete résumé experience.
In addition to the required project course, you’ll have the opportunity to take elective classes, as part of your chosen specialization, with experiential components that prepare you to enter your future career with confidence.
Through a mix of coursework, discussions with local government and business leaders, and on-site visits to leading companies and organizations, you’ll experience the world of international business firsthand.
As one of the most diverse business schools in the nation, Simon Business School is proud to support and celebrate a cross-cultural MBA experience for every student.
Immersions enhance your global awareness by allowing you to explore the business world beyond the American borders. Through a mix of coursework, discussions with local government and business leaders, and on-site visits to leading companies and organizations, immersions give you the opportunity to experience the world of international business firsthand.
