Study Tour in the USA
As a Global Leader participant, you will have the option to take part in Aalto Executive MBA study tours.
A study tour normally involves a 4 or 5-day study period designed to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the international business environment. Traditionally these tours have taken EMBA participants to Palo Alto and Boston in the USA. The study tour module program consists of lectures by academics – in Palo Alto professors from Stanford and in Boston professors from Harvard – typically related to the current topics of international corporate strategies, leadership, innovation, finance and the characteristics of the local business environment. Time is also allocated for extracurricular activities to give participants an opportunity to network and meet with the local business community.
There is a separate registration process (limited seats available) and a separate fee for study tours.
