Experience four world regions
You will travel to the USA, Europe, Latin America and Asia to immerse yourself in major issues shaping the region.
Each global residency lasts seven or eight days. During the residencies, you will meet your new global team members, who will work with you to complete core course projects when you return to your partner school.
You will discuss the challenges and opportunities of global business with corporate and government leaders in that region. You’ll stay on the move – visiting local and multinational business sites and enjoying cultural and social events. You’ll find videos, sample itineraries and a photo gallery for each of these residencies on the home page.
Experience challenges in developed and emerging markets
A growing global economy depends on developed countries creating new industries while emerging economies maintain and improve industries of the present and past. You’ll participate in this process as you meet face-to-face with government and industry leaders in developed countries, such as the US and the Netherlands, as well as emerging economies like Turkey, Brazil, China and India. We update residencies annually, so residency locations and activities may change from year to year.
Gain an insider’s perspective
Each OneMBA partner school hosts the residency held in its world region. The faculty, students, and staff of the host school provide insider perspectives on business and political issues. They also provide access to people and places that would normally be closed to outsiders.
