New York Field Trip: Business in a Global City
One of the best ways to learn something is to experience it firsthand. And one of the most important things today’s managers must learn is how to manage and lead in global environments. That is why CEU Business School offers a field trip in New York City that immerses students in one of the world’s most vibrant and international cities.
Accelerated One-year MBA students spend three weeks in New York City visiting companies and interacting with entrepreneurs, CEOs, and subject matter experts in a variety of sectors — from finance and real estate to clean technology and media. Previous company visits have included the New York Times, growth equity firm General Atlantic, and clean-tech start-up Verdant Power. Shortly after returning from NYC, students give group presentations about key takeaways from their experience.
While in NYC, students witness how to manage and start a business in a city — like most global and emerging cities — that’s defined as much by its opportunities as it is by its challenges. Module creators said that “Business in a Global City” will increase CEU Business School MBA graduates’ employment options by widening their professional network and deepening their understanding of international business, leadership and management.
The NYC module is a prime example of how CEU Business School designs innovative learning opportunities to make its programs relevant and rewarding. It’s also characteristic of our international approach to learning. We look to the world and to our students, who come from all over the globe, to better understand best practices in today’s global business environment.The module will be offered for the 2016-17 Accelerated One-year MBA class at no additional cost.
