International Study Module

USB MBA’s International Study Module

Alumni may apply to join the MBA International Study Module abroad and benefit from this immersive learning experience. At least 10 different options are offered at international business schools each year. Each option consists of lectures in fields such as strategy, financial management, technology, sustainability or marketing, and includes visits to global companies.

EMBA Consortium options

The MBA International Study Module includes the EMBA Consortium options. The EMBA Consortium for Global Business Innovation is the result of collaboration by 10 business schools located in key regions around the world. USB is an EMBA Consortium member school. Every year, at the same time, each school offers a week-long programme to MBA students from the participating schools.

EMBA’s philosophy is that by offering a global portfolio of geographically focused programmes, students can confront the reality of doing business in vastly different settings in ways that reinforce previous learning and provide a global perspective on business innovation, which is critical in today’s environment. By living in and learning from different markets, teachers, colleagues, companies, government institutions and cultures, even if for only a relatively short period of time, students will experience a paradigm shift that will serve them well for years to come. Find additional details at

The cost of the MBA International Study Module is determined annually and is included in the MBA fees. This module forms part of the USB’s internationalisation strategy to produce well-rounded managers who can lead people and organisations anywhere in the world.
