Abstract

The purpose of this article is to explore the benefits of experiential learning for students enrolled in MBA programs. As applied learning complements a student’s academic curriculum, internships serve as an opportunity for practical experience that cannot be obtained theoretically in a classroom-based setting. The paper makes an argument for the recommendation of experiential training in MBA programs. The definition of experiential learning, past research relevant to the topic on the graduate level, and recommendations for future inquiry are provided.
