Business Visit Request
Overview: Arcadia University’s MBA with a Global Perspective offers, as it value proposition, the ability to study and visit two countries within their 18 month MBA experience – one with an established economy and the other an emerging economy in order to compare and contrast corporate business strategies. The one week experience includes business visits with varying companies, ranging from multi- national corporations to established domestic companies. Typically a visit to the US Commercial Service is included to set the context for the business environment. Additionally, an organized cultural tour is included.

Business Visit Description
Business Visits typically including hosting the group of MBA students, the majority of whom are working professionals. During the visit, which can last from 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the agenda, the host company typically offers a presentation on a specific business function. The time includes a question and answer period. Past topics have ranged from marketing strategies at Campari to Human Resources at Vodafone. Occasionally, tours are included if warranted. For example, a tour of Fiat’s safety center was part of the half day visit in Italy.
Historically, business have hosted the students as guests and viewed it as an opportunity to showcase a business and increase awareness about a product or service, and its place in the global economy.
Arcadia will provide the organization with a list of student names and backgrounds such as degree and company for which they are working. In addition, prior to a business visit opportunity, Arcadia will submit questions from students to help facilitate discussion. We also need that speaker biographies be shared within three weeks of the business visit.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to building a strong relationship in the future,

Yours sincerely,

Radu Lupoae
Director of Danubius International Business School
