Picture of Sarah Hsu in PragueWhy Participate in a Short Program Abroad?

Students attend a structured program at one of our partner schools that include lectures, company or site visits and cultural activities ranging from 10 days to 3 weeks depending on the program. From Fashion Industry Management to Innovation Boot Camps, there is something for the most diverse of interests. A program fee is required to cover some of the costs. Students can receive the equivalent of 3-6 Schulich credits.
 
Mohit Rajadhyaksha, MBA

“The Vienna Innovation Program 2018 was the highlight of my MBA. The short exchange program was the perfect blend of academics and fun. I was able to focus on my interest in innovation management but more importantly the program gave me an opportunity to backpack across different cities in Europe and learn about their culture and history. I truly cherish the memories from my time there!”

Mohit Rajadhyaksha, MBAVienna Innovation Program
