International Treks

Learn by Doing.

Simon Business School students in JapanSimon Business School students on an international trip in business attireThe Simon EDGE program offers Global Awareness exposure for our MBA students through opportunities to travel abroad. Our 1-2 week international treks typically occur during winter or spring break and include corporate visits, alumni networking opportunities, cultural visits, and more. Some treks may be taken in tandem with a credit-bearing course. Treks taken in conjunction with credit-bearing courses require students to complete a consulting project with a company and/or class sessions with a Simon professor before and during the trip.

Planned trips for 2016 – 2017 include:

Simon Israel Trip – March 2017

  • World Trade Organization

The cost of treks is not included in Simon tuition and is an added expense for those students who choose to participate.
