Experiential Learning

Because of the specialized nature of the MBA Program at the University of Wyoming, students have the opportunity to participate in a number of experiential opportunities outside of the traditional classroom setting. We find it crucial for our graduates to become immediate contributors to the organizations they join when they successfully graduate from our program. Below you can explore some of the unique opportunities we provide students in order to ensure them an understanding of how business is truly conducted and under what kind of circumstances decisions have to be made.

International Experience

2016 MBA Grad talking in reference to his time spent in Germany for the International Experience, JT Cattelan states, "Working with a multi-national team was difficult yet beneficial to my development as a professional. Working around different norms and customs is essential to doing business internationally. Work ethic and passion vary greatly among different societies, and as a group, I felt we overcame this obstacle."
