Global Programs

Hands-on experience is an invaluable asset for aspiring leaders looking to drive continued success in a rapidly changing global business landscape. The online MBA program offers a variety of in-person learning opportunities that allow students to network, consult and apply new skills firsthand in the global community.

Student Teams Achieving Results (STAR)

The Student Teams Achieving Results program, or STAR, is a hands-on learning program in which students learn by doing as they take on the role of consultants to real companies. Students will work in teams of five–seven under the guidance of a faculty adviser to address pressing strategic and functional needs of a corporation or nonprofit organization.

Recent STAR clients include organizations such as:

  • GE Healthcare
  • Krispy Kreme
  • Lowe’s Companies, Inc.

These one–two week courses give students an in-depth look at how business is done in unique global settings, allowing them to broaden their perspectives on solving problems in their own organizations at home.

Recent DBI courses have taken place in locations such as France, Germany, Peru, Israel and Brazil.
