Your education is not complete without a global experience. You should begin thinking about your study abroad plan as soon as you start your masters program.
Check with the master's office about the availability of financial aid for study abroad.
Most Krannert study abroad trip do not interfere with summer internships.
Explore the different types of study aboard programs below.
Short-Term Study Abroad
Several short-term study programs are available for masters students. Trips are of one to two weeks in duration and take place in March during Global Week and Spring Break as well as in May, right after the semester ends. One week trips may be taken back-to-back, meaning you may choose to go to Rome during Global Week and then to Paris or another location during Spring Break week. Program activities typically consist of a mixture of classroom lectures, company visits, and cultural tours.
A two week internship with TVS Motors in Bangalore, India, is available from GSCMI. Unlike study tours, internships require students to work on specific manufacturing management projects and do not include lectures or cultural tours.
International Consulting Projects
Two types of consulting projects programs are offered. The Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI) provides consulting opportunities to teams of Krannert masters students. Projects are typically two modules in length during the spring semester. The Global Business Project (GBP) offers consulting projects in which Krannert students work in teams with students from a consortium of other 13 other universities on real-world corporate projects.
