MBA Global Business Courses
Understand the Global Context
The Smith School is thrilled that you are considering a short-term program abroad
as part of your Smith Experience credits, and we hope you decide to participate.
As a study abroad student, you are not just a tourist – you are embarking on something
much richer and have access to experiences a tourist could never have. We hope you
enjoy your time abroad and push yourself to get outside your comfort zone even a
little bit: see what you discover about the country you are visiting and about yourself.
And you will have the opportunity to get to know your colleagues even better.
2013-14: Smith Go Global!
Get in front of reality. Being a tourist is easy; studying abroad takes
effort and adaptability. But the rewards will be great!
