Study Tours Study Tours give MBA students the opportunity to explore the economic, political, and cultural contexts of business in regions around the world. Tours are proposed by students, who then partner with faculty and staff mentors to plan the tour content and logistics. A student organizing team identifies a theme they are passionate about and designs a series of for credit classes and a 1-2 week trip in March, during SIP and Spring Break, 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.
