2012 Study tours in China and Switzerland - Business leaders as "Executives-in-Residence" welcome.
For the past few years, MBA students have had the chance to visit these two countries and meet in small groups with business leaders from organizations such as GE Global Research (Shanghai); HSBC Bank (Shanghai); ABB Wind Energy (Beijing); Roche (Basel); Helsana (Zurich); and The Swiss Red Cross (Bern). The trips also include the participation in lectures and discussions with leading academics. The Switzerland trip specifically targets healthcare and provides lessons to Americans interested in the reform of healthcare financing and delivery. In China, both a general business track and a healthcare track is included that has visits to both state-of-the art and traditional medical facilities.
These are not your typical business tours. Both trips are coordinated by professors who have lived and worked in these countries. By tapping into personal contacts, they create a one-of-a-kind experience for our MBA students who also receive course credit for their participation in this rigorous academic and cultural experience. Each year, our students rave about the high-touch meetings and experiences they have in China and Switzerland. They talk about how the trip changes their approach to the way they think about business and healthcare. We believe our study tours can provide the same value and insight to our MBA alumni and local business leaders.
We would like to extend this opportunity to alumni and business leaders to join us as an "Executive in Residence" in the China and Swiss Study Tours. As an �executive in residence� you can provided valuable insight to our students while simultaneously learning about business in China or Switzerland. You would also be providing scholarship support to help make this important global learning experience possible for our MBA students.
