MBA Students Take “Doing Business in…” Courses

MBA students recently traveled around the world to Australia, Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Israel and Singapore for the Fall 2015 “Doing Business in (DBi)” courses. Students attended lectures at local universities, studying topics ranging from the economy and financial markets to corporate strategy, entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainable development. They attended corporate visits with representatives from organizations such as Cathay Pacific, Hotel Finca Rosa Blanca, LinkedIn, Natura and Nestle. They also enjoyed a number of unique cultural experiences, such as a performance by Meninos do Morumbi, the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb, a visit to a kibbutz and a tour of the Po Lin Monastery.

“The DBi program, and DBi Singapore in particular, has been the best part of my Stern experience thus far. It encapsulated a lot of what I hoped to get out of my MBA. From touring the sites, to visiting companies, to learning about cross-cultural negotiations from excellent faculty at the National University of Singapore, I came back to the US with a more global, holistic perspective on life. I know that the lessons from this trip, academic and otherwise, will carry with me through my remaining time at Stern and as I reenter the working world,” reflected MBA student Jamie Farris.
