Global Strategic Management Trip

Active Learning around the World

A student-selected 10-day international trip caps off the program, exposing students to the challenges inherent in conducting business on a global scale. Students experience first-hand countries at different stages in economic development, apply classroom knowledge to real world issues, and immerse themselves in the culture and business policies of a foreign country.

Imagine visiting with Takealot the Amazon of South Africa or Jio in India – working to disrupt digital services and technology throughout India. Each year we look at the world and we pull together city pairs and we allow our students to select from these. Learning is relevant, timely, and absolutely fascinating.

  • Compare and contrast countries at different stages in economic development.
