Global Business Experience – International Consulting Projects
“Many classes explore the possibility of offering advice to corporations abroad, but the Global Business Experience class offers a higher level of learning that
can only be reached when formulating and presenting your consultation to company executives.”
“My consulting project for 3M in Peru sharpened my skills in market research and segmentation analysis. I also connected with influential South American Executives who helped me advance my career.”

“The most important fact my project has taught me is that an understanding of a countries cultural attitudes and historical background will unlock the mysteries of business in that country. This will help guide me in choices I make in the coming years as I do business in India, Iran and China.”
Working in small teams, students partner with executives from multinational organizations to address complex business challenges. Prior to the trips, students collaborate remotely for several months. Then, they spend one week in the client’s country to present their final recommendations to the organization’s leadership. Full-time MBA students take the trip during the spring semester, and evening program students travel during the summer.
“Over the more than six months that we worked on the project, we were in regular communication with our host company in Seoul. Our hard work was validated when senior executives endorsed our findings and suggested that our recommendations would be incorporated into their Korean business plan.”
“Like in any country, doing business in India requires an understanding of its unique culture and society. The valuable experience gained from a week of living and working in Mumbai helped our team to deliver even more value to our client.”

“My project with Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts was truly a transformative experience. It was exciting to work on a global brand and travel to
Hong Kong, and it also provided a real-world opportunity to learn about the Chinese consumer market.”
