Students in the MBA@American program participate in specially designed experience courses: Business in Capitals immersions. These immersions offer students the chance to expand on the relationships they develop in the online classroom, working closely with classmates and professors in a real-world setting. Students also hear from business leaders, collaborate with peers through group assignments, and explore the local culture of the host city.

Each year, at least one immersion will take place in Washington, D.C., on American University's campus. This allows students the opportunity to explore the unique culture of business in the nation's capital while immersing themselves in American University's community. Other immersions will be offered in business capitals across the United States and around the world.

Immersions last three to four days, and students are required to complete two immersions during their program. Students are responsible for all immersion travel and accommodation expenses and arrangements. Program fees will be assessed for direct program expenses, and all immersion experiences carry 1.5 credit hours and the related tuition.
