Building our Maine Business Leaders One Student as a Time

Orono -

How do we improve the economic climate of Maine? Simple: we develop thoughtful, well-educated business leaders who have the expertise and knowledge to tackle the complex business issues of the times. In the UMaine Business School MBA program, one way of doing this is to challenge our MBA students at the end of their programs of study to see the business world in a different way; from a global perspective. Every MBA student is required to participate in an international field experience, creating new knowledge and new perspectives on the impacts of global business, economics, politics and culture. This year, we have 2 trips. Dr. Mahon, Dean of the Business School, is currently leading an undergraduate business trip to Russia. Dr. Jones and Dr. Strong are leading an MBA trip to the United Kingdom (May 13-23, 2010).
