With the continuing globalization of the economy, the need to think and compete globally has become an imperative. Berkeley-Haas prepares you to take an international approach to business through courses, special programs, international travel experiences, and club activities.
International Learning Opportunities
Seminar in International Business – students spend one to two weeks studying a variety of industries within a particular country and learning what it’s like to do business in that particular economy.
International Business Development (IBD) – a global management consulting program offered to Evening & Weekend MBA students during the summer term. Students work in teams to apply business principles learned in the classroom to real-world engagements with international clients.
