Global Study Tour Courses
At Stern, each class embarks on two required Global Study Tours. These one-week international residencies are an integral component of the core curriculum.
Enhance direct international business exposure with global study experiences in dynamic contemporary markets around the world.
As a student, you will participate in a Global Study Tour during each year of the program. Global Study Tour destinations are carefully selected by Stern faculty and administration with a focus on relevant business trends and current events. Your second-year destination will typically be very different from your first, allowing you to compare different dynamic contemporary market economies.
Study in International Markets
From Latin America to the Middle East and AsiaRecent classes have studied in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Some of the countries visited include Argentina, Russia, Estonia, Turkey, the UAE, China and India. While abroad, you will participate in meetings and in-depth discussions with leaders of industry, financial institutions and government organizations.
As an example, some highlights from the April 2013 Germany and Spain study tour included a variety of meetings with executives in Frankfurt and Madrid, including the European Central Bank, La Liga di Futbol Profesional, Ogilvy and BBVA. The EMBA class also enjoyed a tour of an Opel/GM production plant and guided excursions to see the sights in both cities like the Frankfurt Cathedral and Madrid’s Royal Palace.
Most overseas costs associated with the two Global Study Tours, such as accommodations and meals, are included in the program tuition. Students are responsible for their own round-trip airfare to and from the program destination and other nominal expenses.
