As part of the Executive MBA course program at GSB Mainz, participants have the opportunity to participate in up to three one-week study visits at top partner universities. GSB Mainz cooperates in this field with partner universities on three continents. These are the Tongji University in Shanghai, the McCombs School of Business of the University of Texas in Austin and the Business School of the University of Adelaide. A study visit is an integral part of the program. The study visits abroad are offered in regular rotation so that participants in the Executive MBA program can complete all three study visits abroad. The overriding goal of the study stays, which all have a very different character due to the very different destinations with their specific socio-cultural, political and social characteristics, is to develop an understanding of the challenges of a globalized economy.
