The Richmond MBA

MBA Community:

More than 15 years ago, a group of faculty from the Robins School of Business spent a year thinking about what a 21st century MBA program ought to include. The group was absolutely convinced that getting our students into a foreign country for consulting engagements with local firms should not be optional. The result of their work was a curriculum that featured an International Residency, an important and required part of our curriculum that has become a hallmark of The Richmond MBA.

In this special summer edition of the newsletter, you will learn about the recent International Residency to Riga, Latvia. Under the leadership of Dr. Tom Cossé, the International Residency has taken our students to fascinating and challenging locations around the world. As you read about the trip and the organizations with whom our students are working, you will understand why so many of our former students are encouraging us to create an extra International Residency for alumni of our program.
