GSBA 582, The Global Environment and International Business, is a required course for MBA.PM students. This first component consists of a course focusing on the analysis of the global business environment and how this environment affects business decisions. This component examines how to assess the economic, political, social/cultural, institutional, and business environment of different countries.

The second component, the PM GLOBE module, consists of country-specific training sessions, an international field trip to a specific country or pair of countries, and a post-trip conference in which the results of the strategic industry or company analysis are presented. Each year, approximately 300 students participate in PM GLOBE as part of the GSBA 582 course.
