Led by a business professor, students are scheduled to meet with a variety of businesses in the overseas destination city. A cultural tour is also arranged. Free time allows students to independently explore business and personal interests. The trip is completely voluntary and is assessed extra travel and accommodations fees.
For MBA students, this trip is associated with the following course:
