Global Immersion Experiences are available to students in the Flex MBA Program
One goal of the Lehigh FLEX MBA 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, and the trip to China focuses on transportation, manufacturing, and logistics. In the past, we have explored Chile and Argentina where we contrasted developing countries; Athens, Greece where we introduced our finance students to the European financial crisis; and Tours, France, where we received an understanding of European business practices.
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.
"Traveling to the United Kingdom was an exciting, hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in. I was able to be a part of the city- not just visit its main attractions, see multiple businesses from the inside-out, and establish new connections with my fellow students from here as well as internationally with the students from Nottingham. The United Kingdom Global Immersion is, hands down, one of the most valuable benefits of my MBA career." - Amanda Domitrowich, Lehigh MBA UK Study Tour Participant
"I was proud to represent Lehigh in China and I encourage you to see this beautiful and historic place. The people are welcoming and more than happy to accommodate. The trip offered both cultural and commercial sites. As overheard during our trip, “if you want to do something big in the future, you have to know China!" - Aaron Alkasov, Lehigh MBA China Study Tour Participant
