Setting: On Location

Barcelona, New York City, Silicon Valley, Sao Paulo, Shanghai: each site has been deliberately chosen for its strategic purpose in advancing your learning. As a result, your learning experiences in each module -company visits, meetings with executives, special projects, cultural activities and get-togethers with local citizens- correlate with the setting. Individually, each locale enriches your learning in personal and meaningful ways. Collectively, they create for you a once-in-a-lifetime global experience.

Now you can choose between the Europe and Americas track. Each track begins with an emphasis on its home continent and the two tracks merge as the program develops. For full details download a brochure using the link on the right side of the page.
