Global Master's Programs
Types of Programs
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 Paris during Global Week and then to Madrid 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 CIBER 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.
GISMA offers a popular option for students to take Krannert courses while spending a full module in Germany and paying the same tuition as if they were on campus. Students receive full credit toward their degree for all courses taken.
- When do the programs take place? Do they interfere with summer internships? Most programs occur in March during Global Week and Spring Break (two weeks) or during early May, prior to summer internships.
- When should I start to plan for them? You should begin thinking about your study abroad plan as soon as you start your masters program.
- Is financial aid available? Check with the masters office about the availability of financial aid for study abroad.
