Study Tours give students the opportunity to explore the economic, political, and cultural contexts of business in regions outside the US. Tours are proposed and planned by students, with the guidance of faculty and staff mentors.
A student organizing team identifies a theme they are passionate about and designs a series of classes and a 1-2 week trip to explore this in detail. Student participants have the opportunity to learn about the theme and experience specific challenges associated with it first-hand. In addition they meet, learn from, and exchange ideas with business and government leaders outside of the US.
Students compare traditional versus modern concepts in branding, by examining the brands of different products and countries. They will visit Spain, Germany, and Sweden.
Students visit Israel and Palestine, to investigate what positive externalities can be created by private sector activity, and the best practices that maximize these.
