UNIBusiness students can even gain an international experience without leaving campus.

Each year, we host student and faculty visitors from every part of the globe. Students study alongside you,  while faculty teach courses with authentic international flavor.

UNIBusiness also welcomes multiple groups of international guests to participate in business-focused training workshops. Some courses are specific to a particular partner university, while others are open to any graduate or undergraduate student throughout the world. International participants live on campus and interact with local students. Below are examples of programs that bring UNI and international students together.

 

Global Decision-Making and Negotiation (MBA)

Since 2012, UNIBusiness offers a two week graduate program. The program was developed with EAFIT University in Medellin, Colombia but is open to MBA students from around the world. Students visit companies, hear guest speakers, participate in cultural events and education exercises. One aspect is meeting UNI MBA students and participating in the MBA day when each team presents its research.
