The Global Immersion program is an experiential learning opportunity for MBA students to explore an alternative business, government, and cultural paradigm in order to better appreciate the differences and similarities in business environments and, ultimately, make more informed business decisions. We expect that students will achieve this objective through the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone in visiting another country and reflect on their experiences. The Global Immersion trip takes place immediately following the conclusion of Global Perspectives (BA 535) and Global Business Environment (BA 532) which provide the foundation for a focused international study during the immersion trip.
The trips consist of (1) business-related activities such as company visits, factory tours, case studies, and panel discussions, (2) cultural activities including visiting museums, landmarks, and historical sites, (3) academic work including site-specific lectures on the local economy, business practices, and governmental frameworks, and (4) free time to allow for city exploration, shopping, etc.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel or hostel accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. In order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must contact the program leader.
