Boston-Based, Globally Focused

The BU EMBA helps you drive real-world transformation: transforming yourself and your organization. That’s why the program’s global components are so essential, and so extensive. We feature a five-month, two-module sequence on The Global Environment and New Venture Creation in a Global Economy. And we help you put that curriculum into action with the international seminar in Residence Week 3.

Across the World and On the Ground

The renowned EMBA International Seminar isn’t just another junket. It takes you out of the classroom and deep into global businesses and economies. The seminar provides hands-on experience:

  • Making business contacts abroad
  • Conducting research on countries and industries overseas
  • Pulling together—quickly and efficiently—a high-performing team

During the seminar you’ll participate in:

  • Lectures and presentations, including discussion of cultural, legal, and regulatory issues
  • Site visits with businesses, government officials, and non-profit organizations
  • Team assignments that engage students with local organizations
