If you want to fully grasp the complex interdependencies in today’s increasingly globalized business environment, you need to go out into the world - there are things you cannot learn about through reading but only through personal experience.
The Professional MBA curriculum extends well beyond the walls of the classroom. In the course of program, you will complete an international residency in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, USA. You will be working with international faculty members e.g. at Stanford University and experienced practitioners.
The international residency links theoretical input to practical examples in an international context. Besides attending different classes and distinguished guest speaker presentations, students visit leading companies and exchange with their managers.
Lectures of past residencies include:

The international residency provided ideal networking opportunities. I came back to Vienna fueled with new ideas and have already impressed our CEO today with notions from the system leadership module.
The lectures at Stanford were amazing, done by great professors. They were really insightful for me. The company visits at Google, NetApp, DocuSign, and Open Austria provided very good insights. The team event at Napa Valley was also great.
In addition to classes abroad, you will get the opportunity to meet senior executives of leading national and international corporations. Here, you will have the chance to ask questions and listen to their views on the most current issues facing the global markets. You will be exposed to different ways of working, secure new contacts, and gain a global awareness of operating in international markets.
