Twenty-nine students from 11 countries were recognized Thursday at Pittsburg State for its mini MBA program.
The international program provides people a chance to learn about business philosophy and practice in the United States. Topics include international negotiation, situational leadership, and global human resource management and marketing strategies.
Both students and teachers say the program offers a unique experience for students.
"We had finance, we had marketing, we had effective presenting," says mini-MBA graduate Mex Cears. "We did a lot of field trips as well - we went to the Harley Davidson factory, we went to the headquarters of Walmart. It was all very interesting to compare that to the western European style of doing business."
Students participating in the program ranged in ages from 23 to 65.
