Global Learning

Expand Your Horizons

At Katz, students have the opportunity to engage global business issues throughout the curriculum. Whether it is in International Financial Management, Markets and Trading, Global Macroeconomics or Global Supply Chain Management, our faculty will challenge you to explore key issues affecting global business throughout your Katz experience.

Additionally, well-designed and highly focused short-term global experience-based learning (EBL) is meaningful and results in gaining valuable transferable skills, such as critical thinking, leadership, flexibility, and global mindset. Katz students have the opportunity to gain these skills through impactful global experience-based learning opportunities offered by Katz. There are three Katz global EBL flagship programs. Additionally, students have access to Katz partnership programs and university wide study abroad opportunities on an individual basis.
