MBA@Denver Immersions

MBA@Denver students get the unique opportunity to travel to domestic and global industry destinations for two required in-person immersions. During these three-day events, you’ll get to meet your online MBA peers and expand your relationships while you learn from business leaders, visit industry sites and collaborate in group workshops to solve real business challenges. Grow your network and discover how your career goals fit into the global business ecosystem.

“My immersion experience was unlike anything I have experienced from a school program before. I had the ability to network with other students in my cohort, challenge myself to think about a current opportunity in my company and then present that idea to a group of people who offered valuable feedback.”

– Devin Heitman, Wealth Management Client Relationship Consultant, TIAA

A Worldwide Focus

Immersion topics are developed with today’s global business landscape in mind. Working and learning alongside peers and professionals from different industries and locations, you’ll learn how to become a market-ready leader with a global perspective.

An International Experience

During your international immersions, you can take advantage of an optional extension course—an add-on elective that includes five additional days to travel and learn about local business. Visit two or three businesses a day, meet with local speakers and discover what global leadership looks like in other parts of the world.

Global Experience Spotlight

Cultural Intelligence in Cape Town

In Cape Town, South Africa, MBA@Denver students explored the concepts of emotional, cultural and contextual intelligence and met with some of the country’s premier socially responsible business leaders. As a part of the optional extension during the eight-day trip, students visited with organizations and businesses including MonkeyBiz, Perspective Investment Management, Pick-n-Pay, RLabs, Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy and Villiera Wines.

“I am bringing home with me a confidence to do more for my community than ever before. This experience will be noted in my personal history as the best possible investment I could have made during my MBA education.”

Creative Collaboration

In group workshops and activities, you’ll collaborate with peers to thoughtfully apply the knowledge you’ve gained during your MBA courses to real-world business challenges. Drawing from your diverse backgrounds and experiences will serve you well as you create bold ideas and novel solutions.
