They are real-life learning labs where students put their newly-acquired global business knowledge to the test. They are also valuable opportunities for students to make important corporate contacts. Supervised by faculty advisors, students earn 6 credits as they work full-time outside their home country for three months during the summer semester. With a 100% placement rate, the Global MBA program office works with students to identify internship sponsors and opportunities. While students are ultimately responsible for attaining their internship through an application and interview process, Suffolk's Career Services office, together with the MBA Programs office, provide professional development opportunities including workshops in resume writing, interview skills, professional imaging, networking, corporate presentations, and career strategy skills. Students intern in a variety of industries and employers have included start-ups, joint ventures, and global corporations. The Global Project for Part-Time Students Toward the end of the program, part-time students complete a Global Business Research Project in their place of business. Closely intertwined with current or projected interests for the student and/or the student's company, these projects are the ultimate in career-relevant education. They address real business issues and apply skills learned in the international finance or international marketing concentration. Alternatively, part-time students may complete a 3-month consulting project that includes two weeks on-site at a global company outside the U.S. The Director of the Global MBA identifies companies outside the U.S. for these intensive two-week on-site projects. Still another alternative, available to students employed by a multinational company, is travel abroad to one of their international offices for an internship or global research project.
