About this course
For more than 30 years, we have helped professionals both build on and broaden their experience and knowledge, as well as improve their strategic and executive approach to business.
Join other high-achieving professionals from elite companies such as Bank of America, Cox Communications, The Coca-Cola Company, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Merrill Lynch, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, IBM, and FOCUS Brands to collaborate and advance your career.
In order to fully investigate the most critical topics, practices, theories and rules in business and how they relate to today’s global markets, we utilize various learning methodologies, including case studies, simulations, class discussions and company-specific projects. What you learn in class over the weekend can be applied immediately to your company on Monday morning.
The program culminates in an intensive, 12-day International Business Residency, which exposes students to the management and business practices of companies around the world. At no time are EMBA students in a classroom on this trip. Instead, students meet with company leaders (both indigenous and American-owned companies), tour plants and facilities, and meet with government officials to better understand what it takes to run a successful business overseas.
Past meetings with companies have included INVESCO, UPS, The Coca-Cola Company, Ernst & Young, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Hewlett-Packard as well as government officials and NGOs that provided students with a first-hand look at the social fabric, technology, infrastructure, politics and culture of the region.
Prior to travel, the class attends an in-depth protocol and trip preparation workshop. Additionally, study teams research and prepare a paper on a company that will be visited on the tour.
Past trips have included Japan, Vietnam, China, India, Thailand, Singapore, Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa.
