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.”
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
Global Sustainability in Italy
In Trieste, Italy, MBA@Denver students learned about global business and sustainability by visiting businesses across the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in northeast Italy. As part of the weeklong trip, students had the opportunity to learn about how local businesses operate and how that can be applied through a global lens of sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
“The DU team had an incredible week mapped out for us, filled with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be granted the access we were—from behind the scenes at Fincantieri, to tours of castles, intimate conversations in historical wine cellars to a tour of a private museum worth multi-millions.”
– Megan Garcia, MBA@Denver student
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.
“During the immersions, I love to see the students bring forth the energy, the passion and then stand and deliver—the professionalism, the quality and the level of performance is thrilling, and it’s part of the reason I love to teach.”
– Jed Summerton, Affiliate Faculty
