Faculty Led: Weekend MBA Overseas Experience
The University at Albany, SUNY continues to monitor and assess the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus pandemic. All Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 education abroad programs worldwide are suspended, and Fall 2021 remains uncertain. While there are no definite answers on when education abroad programming will resume, programs abroad are not expected to all re-open at the same time. Instead, when education abroad relaunches only a limited number of programs and destinations will be available, evaluated based on global travel conditions, health and safety guidelines, SUNY System Administration re-opening protocols, and UAlbany priorities. Therefore at this time, students cannot apply for any UAlbany education abroad programs for Fall 2021 or any future term, as we await guidance and approval from SUNY System Administration. The process of review and approval to re-open programs and destinations will be ongoing. As you plan now for your global future, our dedicated Education Abroad team remains ready and available to assist and guide you! Join our virtual events throughout the Spring 2021 semester and check out our credit bearing virtual options for Summer 2021.
This program is only open to students who are enrolled in the University at Albany's Weekend M.B.A. program. As a Weekend M.B.A. student, you will complete a week-long international program in the summer between your first and second years to learn about global concepts and practices directly from foreign leaders. The Summer 2020 program will travel to Lisbon, Portugal and Madrid, Spain.
As a Weekend MBA student, you are required to participate in the international program and, apart from emergencies, to commit to attend and be on time for all classes.
Credits and grades will appear on your UAlbany transcript. You may file a request to have additional courses approved for equivalency as necessary.
