Global Business Expeditions

Global Business Expeditions (GBEs) are one or two week high intensity global programs offered to graduate students during spring break or May session.  Each program is designed and led by our faculty to integrate industry expertise with a global context via coursework, meetings and small-scale consulting projects with local and global companies, and cultural immersion.  

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 circumstances, all international travel decisions made by leadership at the Fisher College of Business will be informed by the Office of International Affairs and the university. MORE INFO
