Global Immersion - Spring, Second-Year MBA Students

Awareness of international business practices and diverse cultures is an integral part of life as an MBA student, both in the classroom and beyond. Global Immersion is a one-week hands-on opportunity for Smeal MBA students to strengthen and deepen their understanding of global business. Each trip affords students a chance to meet with business leaders for a look at the inner-workings of their corporation and how the company operates in the economy of the country.

We are proud to offer a Leadership Immersion, aligning with Smeal’s growing focus on leadership development.
