Throughout their academic programs, Marshall students gain critical international perspectives as they explore the opportunities presented by cross-cultural collaboration. Across Asia and Latin America, our students soak up key lessons from established and emerging economies. They interact with and learn from executives in Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing and Bangkok.
