March 2018 Global Network Week | June 2018 EMBA Global Network Week | June 2018 MIM Global Network Week | 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.
