Your international course includes a two-week experience where you immerse yourself in the culture and business practices abroad with your classmates. Students attend lectures, site visits, talks and tours where they learn about the challenges and opportunities of operating in a globally interconnected world. In the evenings students are free to explore and enjoy the local culture and cuisine. Past classes have ranked this as one of the best experiences of their lives. The cost of the international course is included in the tuition.

Past Trip Professors and Lecturers

To help students understand business from a truly international perspective, we often work with professors from local education institutions while we are abroad. They provide a richness and context that students can't find at home in textbooks. Some of the professors we've worked with include:

  • Professor Anne Marie Francesco, Director of Human Resource Strategy and Development, Hong Kong Baptist University
  • Lecturer Mr. Jean-Paul Gaertner, Professor of Supply Chain Management and Logistics, EM Strasbourg Business School
  • Professor Graeme Martin, Professor of Human Resources, Edinburgh Business School at Herriott Watt University and the Business School at Glasgow University, Scotland
