Study Abroad at Oxford University

Take advantage of taking a Clemson MBA course at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

More than just an educational study abroad, this course will give you practical experience that will broaden your mind and enhance your resume.

What:

MBA 8110 International Business Management: The purpose of the course is to arm students with skills needed to analyze international business opportunities, develop sound strategies and execute on a global scale. As part of the course, students will be divided into four teams and will be assigned a company to work with. The entire class will visit all four of the companies, but the assigned team will lead discussions at each location directly with the executive team (CEO, CFO, etc.).

  • Two weeks of intensive coursework at Magdalen College, Oxford University and extensive site visits to the four companies assigned for projects.
  • Each team will be assigned to one of the four companies to work with the executive team on identifying the company's growth opportunities.
  • Participation in a formal Oxford University reception, followed by a lecture on a global issue presented by an Oxford University faculty member.
  • Tour of either Rolls Royce or Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing plant.
  • Presentation of proposals to companies via video conference.
  • Upon completion of the course, students will receive a Certificate of Attendance from Oxford University.

MBA 8990 Global Leadership: Accepted students will have the opportunity to enroll in MBA 8990 Global Leadership as an additional elective credit while in Oxford with no additional program fee.

Because international business often requires teams to mobilize quickly, students in this program will utilize the brain based results (Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument*) for quickly becoming a high performance team. The business of “thinking” will be at the core of interactive exercises which will focus on how to leverage the quadrants of the brain for more effective problem solving,& better communication and a higher level of customer interface.

When:

Summer session II, 2018. Students will travel to Oxford June 30th through July 14th.
