AU MBA Program to participate in virtual study tours

08/05/2020 ASHLAND, Ohio – The Ashland University MBA Program announces the participation of virtual study tours in partnership with International Study Programs and is the first Ohio MBA program to offer this opportunity.

In these unprecedented times, Ashland University is adapting and innovating to continue to provide MBA students with world-class opportunities. The virtual study tour provides students with a best-in-class consulting experience, engaging with a world-renowned organization. Students attend virtual meetings with key leaders and stakeholders of Fortune 500 companies to present new strategies and solutions based on today’s challenges.

Global experience is invaluable to the student learning of MBA students, so offering alternative opportunities to international study tours is at the forefront of Ashland University College of Business and Economics Dean Dr. Elad Granot’s mind.

“Our MBA programs strive to provide the most valuable experiences available to our students,” he said. “Due to the impact of COVID-19, we worked diligently to provide an alternative that would provide the same education and exposure as our world-class international study tours. We are proud to be the first university in Ohio to offer this solution and plan to continue to offer unique and experiential experiences to our students.”

This fall, Ashland MBA students will experience Prague, seeing the country through the lens of guided tours and cultural excursions including city tours, local cultural immersion and a local cooking experience. Students will expand their professional network by consulting with Oracle to bridge the physical and digital world.

Ashland University is a mid-sized, private university conveniently located a short distance from Akron, Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio. Ashland University (www.ashland.eduvalues the individual student and offers a unique educational experience that combines the challenge of strong, applied academic programs with a faculty and staff who build nurturing relationships with their students.###
