Dear Business, Communication, and Culture Program Participant:

Welcome to the MBA Business, Communication, and Culture program! This page contains important information and recommendations that will smooth your transition into the program.

About the Program

Participation in this program is an important investment in your success in many different areas of the MBA program. Our curriculum includes cold call lectures, case studies, experiential exercises, team projects, advocacy presentations to demanding audiences, and job search skill development. The program curriculum simulates aspects of the academic experience that international students often find particularly challenging along with fun, cultural immersion activities. 

Typically, BCC sessions will begin each day at 9 am and last through 4 pm Eastern Time.  In addition to the daily schedule of sessions, the program requires participants to prepare some individual and team assignments outside of class.  Making time to prepare for class may present some challenges, so you will need to be settled into your apartment or other living space before the program begins.

To make the BCC a valuable experience, we ask that you attend all of your assigned sessions. Since you will work on projects as a member of a team, for your benefit and to be fair to project teammates, please do not schedule any absences during the program.

Logistical Information

All instructional material and program information will be located on the program’s Canvas website.  Every course at Fuqua has a corresponding Canvas website, and we will send you information about how to access the BCC site a few days before the program begins.

We can’t wait to meet you! Before then, please reach out to Sharon Terry at with any questions. For more on who to contact and general questions, please visit our FAQ page.
