MBA@Syracuse students attend in-person residencies throughout their program. These hands-on experiences take place in the United States and select international cities and offer students the chance to meet classmates and professors face-to-face for workshops and networking events. Residencies are three days long, and each student is required to attend three residencies during the course of the program.
The Residency Experience
At each residency, students have the chance to immerse themselves in the culture of the host city. Topics focus on pressing business issues that relate to the host city as well as the global business landscape. Guest speakers include business leaders from top organizations and thought leaders from a variety of fields.
Each year in early spring, a residency is held on the Syracuse campus in beautiful Central New York, allowing students to experience our school, culture, and community.
The fall residency is held in a different U.S. city each year, offering students an insight into unique business cultures and challenges.
International residencies are held in the winter and summer months in major business centers worldwide, offering students an outlook into the global business landscape.
Students must attend their first residency within the first two semesters of their program in order to begin in-person networking and building connections with classmates and professors. Each residency is one credit and takes place on a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the start of a term. In addition, students are responsible for a residency fee, which is based on the location and activities. The fee is calculated prior to course registration.
Upcoming Residency Locations
Residencies expose students to a wide array of people, ideas, and cultures that are reshaping modern business practices. See where we’re headed next:
