International experience is a big part of the part-time MBA program at Arizona State’s Carey School of Business. Students have the opportunity to travel abroad and broaden their exposure to business concepts in other parts of the world by taking an international elective. Locations vary from year to year, with recent destinations including:
- France and Spain
- Austria and the Czech Republic
- Bosnia, Herzegovina and Greece
- Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia
Choosing an international elective is just one of many ways for part-time students to customize their MBA experience. Seven different optional areas of emphasis are available (though the options are slightly more limited for students in the weekend program) and can be combined if desired. Students in the evening program can also expand their technical training with one of four certificates from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Particularly dedicated students can earn their MBA concurrently with a Master of Engineering or Master of Legal Studies for less time and less expense than it would take to earn both degrees separately.
