Additional International Opportunities
Besides the Tippie Global Learning Opportunities, there are a variety of other ways for you to expand your horizons and gain international experience during your MBA. The program fee subsidy (~$2,400) that is available to you for the GLO may alternatively be applied to one of these opportunities with prior approval, although it may not fully cover the costs associated with these programs. Please contact Jill Tomkins to discuss your options and interest further.
