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.
MBA Alumnus speaking 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."
MBA Students attend an exclusive leadership summit with corporate leaders in Jackson, Wyoming. Students participate in a networking dinner and then spend a full day with the astute panel learning about global strategy in the current state of the economy.
As part of orientation, students spend one week in the beautiful Wyoming mountains camping, hiking, and learning about leadership in a unique setting. The group sets out on this outdoor experience with the goal being to improve leadership competence and to focus on teamwork in a not so typical setting. This experience is designed as an experiential case-study on effective leaders and effective teams.
Corporate relationships are a key to providing a relevant and industry-recognized MBA curriculum. The MBA program hosts an Executive Speaker Series featuring industry leaders from across the nation. This experiential learning opportunity provides students with a strong network of individuals who share their business wisdom and open the door to many employment and mentorship opportunities. As part of the Executive Speaker Series, students also participate in on-site visits to a number of regional companies.
