Global Immersion Experience

  • Each class embarks on an immersive Global Immersion Experience (GIE)—a one-week international residency—in the first year of the Executive MBA program.
  • This integral component of the core curriculum delivers a sophisticated view of world business through intellectual and cultural immersion in regional markets.
  • From Latin America to the Middle East and Asia, destinations are carefully selected by Stern faculty and administration with a focus on relevant business trends and current events. 
  • While abroad, you will participate in meetings and in-depth discussions with leaders of industry, financial institutions and government organizations.
  • You will have the option in your second year to elect another GIE, where destinations will typically be very different from the first, allowing you to compare different dynamic contemporary market economies.
  • GIE program activities are arranged and paid for by the Executive MBA Program, with the following exceptions:
    • International airfare (at the start and end of the program)
    • Dinners on your own
    • Any required visas and passport fees
    • Airport transfers
    • Any incidental expenses incurred during your time abroad
