Current graduate students in a business school are often expected to be the future business leaders in a global environment. Universities are able to facilitate a global awareness by offering short-term study abroad courses. Graduate students often cannot leave their workplace or families for the extended study abroad semester, and the short-term abroad appears to fit their life-style. This paper describes a short-term study abroad concentrating on Technology and Innovation in a developing country. While this is only one class, offered three consecutive years, there are some lessons learned. It is recognized that the impact on learning needs more attention and research to convince faculty and universities that the endeavor is able to benefit graduate students in their careers.
