Lehigh MBA Global Experience
The Lehigh MBA’s goal is to provide an intellectual and professional learning environment that develops future business leaders through experiential learning. As globalization has become a powerful force and perhaps the defining characteristic of the early 21st century, our program strives to offer global immersion experiences to prepare students for unprecedented challenges.
With the understanding that each of our students is unique, our immersion experiences are designed to cover a wide range of topics and industries: the United Kingdom experience is centered around corporate sustainability practices; the trip to China focuses on transportation, manufacturing and logistics; the Chile and Argentina immersion will contrast developing countries; and the trip to Athens, Greece will suit our finance students as they get to the bottom of the European financial crisis.Those with a particular interest in understanding European business practices have the opportunity to do so in Tours, France.
Students will conduct research on a specific topic of interest before and after the week-long trip. On top of the insight gained from the trip’s focus, students will be able to develop an understanding of how best to navigate unfamiliar cultures through experiencing the arts and aesthetics of the given country. We hope you will enjoy our student’s thoughts and findings as they explore different parts of the world.
