Study Abroad and Internships

Time spent abroad for study and internship activities constitutes an integral part of the International MBA Program. Through partnership agreements with academic institutions in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, International MBA students gain an international experience by studying abroad and working abroad! U.S. Students must include 12 hours International Experience in Semesters three (Summer) and four (Fall). International Experience is defined as 12 hours of study abroad and an international internship. International Students will study and intern in Memphis. US International MBA students will intern abroad. Securing an appropriate internship is the student's responsibility (the IMBA office will assist the student) and must be approved by the IMBA Program for academic credit.

Depending upon the language track chosen, US students may spend one or two semesters overseas studying abroad and/or doing an internship abroad.
