MBA Course Offered During Caribbean Cruise

July 08, 2009

MBA Course Offered During Caribbean Cruise Saint Leo University’s MBA program is offering enrolled students another travel-study opportunity this December: they have the option of taking their three-credit Global Business Management (MBA 575) during a Caribbean cruise.

Global Business Management is required in several of the Master of Business Administration degree program options, including the generalist track. The course examines the complexities of conducting business in markets with diverse social, cultural, economic, and legal systems. It is routinely offered at the main campus, at the Continuing Education Centers, and through the Online MBA Program.

In this special adaptation––open to MBA students studying in any of the above venues––students will get a week’s worth of instruction and meetings on-site with international business leader as the ship travels from Miami through the Caribbean, with stops in the Cayman Islands, Mexico and other ports, and at the end of trip, returning to Miami. Topics to be highlighted during this class section will include international development, economics, and management. The students will also have to complete a paper after their travel time, with a topic assigned by the instructor.

SLU has offered several MBA classes in travel formats in previous semesters, and enjoys continued demand for such learning opportunities. This tour will begin on Sunday, December 6, and end the following Sunday, December 13. Space is limited, and SLU students must be enrolled in MBA 575 at the time of the trip to participate in the cruise. Each student will be allowed to bring one adult guest along on the trip. Children will not be permitted.

Travelers can select from three different options and price points for their shipboard accommodations: $469.25 per-person, double-occupancy; $569.25 per-person double-occupancy; or $689.25 per-person double-occupancy. Tuition for the course is charged separately. Deposits of $250 per traveler for the cruise are due July 20, with full payment due September 15.
