Meaningful Experiential Learning

Meaningful experiential learning is part of everything we do at D’Amore-McKim—from guest lectures featuring industry insiders to case study coursework in your classrooms. In fact, three of your 15 elective credits must be experiential in nature. You’ll find that our experiential learning opportunities, where you truly put what you are learning into practice—and can often earn credit while doing it—truly set us apart. 

The gold standard for experiential learning is at the heart of our Full-Time MBA: a paid, 3-, 6-, or up to 12-month job at a leading company. You’ll start your required residency in July.

The Global Consulting Project is a transformative, global experiential learning opportunity—one in which Full-Time MBA students not only travel abroad and polish their global acumen but work as a team to tackle a real business issue for a multinational company in their global office.

The 360 Huntington Fund launched in 2008 and is now a nearly $1 million student managed mutual fund that represents experiential learning in its purest form.

This 3-credit course is designed to give students intense exposure to the global business environment by immersing them in the business practices and culture of a country abroad.

Our 3-credit, week-long residency showcases the intersection of government with business. You will meet with members of Congress, senior civil servants, business executives, lobbyists and other officials to learn first-hand how public policy affects the U.S. and global economies.
