“My immersion experience was unlike anything I have experienced from a school program before. I had the ability to network with other students in my cohort, challenge myself to think about a current opportunity in my company and then present that idea to a group of people who offered valuable feedback.”

A Worldwide Focus

Immersion topics are developed with today’s global business landscape in mind. Working and learning alongside peers and professionals from different industries and locations, you’ll learn how to become a market-ready leader with a global perspective.

An International Experience

During your international immersions, you can take advantage of an optional extension course—an add-on elective that includes five additional days to travel and learn about local business. Visit two or three businesses a day, meet with local speakers and discover what global leadership looks like in other parts of the world.
