Taiwan, the HEART of Asia

When we were first informed the international trip for our class was to Taiwan, many cultural norms, facts and economic statistics were thrown our way.

Posted by Jeff Davis on May 19, 2018 4:00:00 PM

Not Your Average International Trip

The Executive MBA international experience is more than an overseas trip. You are immersed in  the business world and culture of a new city, where traditions and general business practices may seem unusual or even exotic. However, that is one of the exact reasons we select the locations we do — to create a transformative experience for our EMBA students. In addition to company visits, tours, and presentations by senior management, you will also serve as a consultant and subject matter expert, applying your knowledge and expertise to specific client projects. This trip is like none you have experienced before.
