Darla Moore School of Business

Language Immersion

Every International MBA Language Track student selects a language, which begins with introductory language training in the International MBA core. Students then participate in an intensive in-country language immersion to increase their fluency to a level sufficient for business and social conversations.

Your in-country learning experience

Language tracks

Immersion typically lasts from early January until early March of your second year. You will spend approximately three to four hours per day in the classroom advancing your chosen language during the immersion experience. You can choose from the following tracks and locations:

French track
Paris, France
France Langue Notre-Dame- Paris

German track
Mannheim, Germany
University of Mannheim

Spanish track
Guadalajara, Mexico
Tec de Monterrey-Guadalajara

Housing for language tracks

While completing the immersion, students have a range of housing options to choose from. This can vary depending on individual tastes, preferences and availability of housing options in a particular region. Most students opt to rent an apartment/flat near their classes. Prior to the immersion you will be provided with tips and suggestions compiled by previous classes to use as a guide to your housing search.


The Moore school provides a truly different International experience with the language tracks being an exceptional element in my decision-making process."
