One of the primary objectives for the MBA program at Radford University is to prepare graduates to compete in a truly global economy. This is accomplished in three different ways:
- First, in the classroom you will be exposed to numerous cultures and economies through direct contact with fellow students from across the globe. Approximately one-third of RU MBA students come to us from a variety of foreign countries -- France, Ghana, Peru, Trinidad (West Indies), Indonesia, Bulgaria, India, Poland, Venezuela, Jamaica, Tunisia, Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, Bangladesh, Germany, China, South Korea and Saudi Arabia to name but a few. Class discussions and team projects expose our students to numerous cultures and helps to provide a first-hand education on the distinctiveness of different economies.
- The second way is through taking one or more of several courses which focus on international business. Courses such as International Business, Global Market Research, and Entrepreneurship in a Global Economy are but a few of the collection of courses offered by our international faculty.
- The most exciting way RU MBA students develop their awareness and knowledge of international business is by participating in one of several optional summer trips organized each year. Graduate Faculty organize and lead students on trips to such destinations as Belgium, China, Australia, Germany, Ireland and Greece just to name a few. Students may earn credit toward their degree by participating in one of these trips.
