Hong Kong MBA students who wish to do so may join one of the international trips offered through the Tippie Professional MBA Program (PMBA). These optional study trips offer the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the international business environment and the role of culture in world trade through an intensive study-abroad experience. The Iowa PMBA International Programs normally consist of a two-week study trip and include a seminar and academic excursions to international business and cultural centers.
Typically offered biannually in early January and mid-May, PMBA International Programs are designed and taught by Iowa faculty supplemented by guest lecturers from the host country. Participants earn 3 semester hours of credit. Course offerings vary with each trip but are normally elective courses for Hong Kong MBA students. Past trips include China, Germany, Greece, and Italy.
Hong Kong MBA students would pay tuition for this course to CEG as usual. In addition, students are responsible for the program fee, which covers hotel expenses, ground transportation, and some meals. Students are also responsible for their own airfare to the class location. If you are interested in participating in one of these trips, please contact the University of Iowa program director for more information.
