I did my MBA at Gonzaga University (graduated 2001) – it’s a great school.
I was just looking at their program web site and see that they now emphasize and encourage opportunities for a global education:
The School of Business Administration encourages students, faculty, and staff to pursue activities that enhance understanding and competencies in international business, language, and culture.
Given the continued globalization of business it’s imperative that our students, faculty and staff develop and maintain a global perspective in order to be competitive leaders in the business and academic communities.
We encourage each student to incorporate international experiences into their University experience. We provide opportunities for students to study abroad for a semester without delaying graduation as well as personalized advising so students can make the most of their international experience
If you are in college now – undergrad or grad – and are not looking at ways to develop international experience, your career will likely suffer.
More than 50% of undergrads at Gonzaga will do a study abroad. When other programs and opportunities, perhaps not connected with the University, such as service programs, internships and some summer travel experiences, I suspect the actual percentage is more like 50%
