Our customized, international program development process allows us to partner with your organization to create an effective, specialized program to meet your specific needs. We work with world-class faculty from The Paul Merage School of Business as well as top instructors and executives from across the United States.

Participants learn the latest relevant research and advanced concepts in ways that are memorable, practical, and fun. The Paul Merage School of Business uses Educational Container website software to minimize the amount of time spent in a classroom, while maximizing the experience and its effectiveness.

Options to ensure a well-rounded experience:

 

  • Customizable cultural adventures
  • Site visits at southern California companies and business partners
  • Exursions to athletic, entertainment, or shopping destinations
     

 

 

 

 

Custom International Programs

 

Examples of recent custom international programs:

Short-Term Program
A world-renowned research university in Beijing partnered with UC Irvine to develop a two-day study program focusing on international business and real estate. The time in class included lectures from “executive practitioners” who lead China-U.S. international business ventures, and was balanced with site visits and evening cultural/shopping excursions.
 

Medium-Term Program
UC Irvine faculty and staff worked with the information and media management department at a leading Korean university to develop a customized nine-day study tour program focused on big data and global business culture and negotiations. The study tour included site visits to California-based global corporations, local cultural excursions, and a trip to northern California to meet with Silicon Valley information technology executives.
 

Long-Term Program
Each December through June, UC Irvine hosts 15-35 Korean finance MBA students. The two-quarter program is customized to meet their home university’s curriculum requirements. It includes three classes designed exclusively
for the students, as well as two electives, in which visitors are matched with other UC Irvine students. Most students
bring their families, which allows them and their spouse/children to perfect their English skills while immersed in a
foreign culture. At the end of the program, UC Irvine issues transferrable credit that is applied toward the students’ MBA
program completion.
