About Global Network Weeks

EMBA Global Network Weeks | October 2016 Global Network Weeks | Past Global Network Weeks | In the News

Global Network Weeks give MBA students and faculty the opportunity to pursue intensive study at another network school, in a focused mini course that leverages the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of that school. Alongside their counterparts from elsewhere in the network, students attend classes, tour local businesses, and meet with experts focused on current business problems.
