For candidates seeking global immersion during their MBA experience, New York University’s Stern School of Business provides ample opportunity to study abroad, with trips as short as one to two weeks or as long as a full semester, through its “Doing Business in…” (DBi) program. DBi trips take place between the fall and winter semesters, during spring break, and in May (after classes conclude). Each course (trip) is tailored to its specific locale and includes a mix of lectures given by Stern faculty as well as by local business practitioners and/or government representatives. Complementing the classroom learning are hands-on field experiences at corporate headquarters, factories, ports, development sites, and other such locations. DBi destinations in 2014–2015 included Spain, Brazil, Singapore, Morocco, and Hong Kong, just to name a few. Students who participate in the DBi program gain a new perspective on conducting business in a different culture while making some great memories with fellow “Sternies” along with way.
