Due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, all study abroad programs at LMU are cancelled for summer 2020. LMU MBA students graduating in 2020 will be completing an online international business course to fulfill their international study requirement.

We expect that MBA students graduating in 2021 and beyond will be able to participate fully in our required global study experience. For many students, this is the highlight of their graduate studies.

Comparative Management Systems (CMS) Program

Each year a different region of the world is selected for study in the CMS Program. Students are split into teams and conduct research on a specific business topic. Teams are guided by a faculty advisor over the course of two semesters. The program concludes with a two-week international trip to various countries, allowing firsthand exposure to global management practices and intercultural dynamics.
