Where In the World Will TMMBA Go – 2013 International Study Tour

Mikaela Houck, Manager of Academic & Student Services

The Destination
As part of the TMMBA Program, students have the unique opportunity to attend an optional international global immersion during their 2nd year of study. The TMMBA Program is pleased to announce that Dubai & Abu Dhabi will be the 2013 TMMBA International Study Tour (IST) destinations.  Bigger, brighter and better – the United Arab Emirates is fast expanding and offers a fascinating economic and cultural climate for our TMMBA students to explore.

The Details
The Study Tour, slated from March 10-18, 2013, allows students to experience business and culture in these two cities first-hand through personal meetings with executives and senior managers, entrepreneurs, company visits, academic institutions, government agencies and cultural excursions.

The Study Tour is a 2-credit C/NC course (TMMBA 549: International Business & Cultural Immersion) and participants are required to complete one pre-trip assignment, two-to-three IST course meetings during winter quarter 2013 and attend all required company and cultural visits.

The Reward
Often touted as a highlight of the TMMBA program, students have a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn the dynamics of international business while enjoying the rich historical, cultural, and aesthetic dimensions of two “world class” cities.

Students can utilize business concepts, skills and strategic insights in a new cultural context and market economy, and bring this new knowledge to their workplace. Lastly, it’s a great way to have fun and for students to deepen their TMMBA network!

“The experience really is one of the most fulfilling activities one can participate in during the TMMBA program.  The company visits, the strong relationships formed with classmates, and the cultural immersion is well worth it”  Matt Muoio, TMMBA Alum, Class of 2006
