The Asian module is designed to introduce future global business leaders to the challenges and opportunities of doing business in the dynamic and complex business environment of emerging markets in Asia  with a current focus  on China.

Pre- and post-sessions are combined with an intensive, two-week field experience comprising 13-15 formal visits, several cultural excursions, classes at Peking University and a meeting with local Chinese students. Students see and hear first-hand the Chinese experience, and what it takes to be successful in business through a local and an international lens.

Global Partners MBA students meet with senior executives from a broad spectrum of organizations, including multinationals and small and medium organizations, Chinese and non-Chinese, across industries and functional areas, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and non-profits while examining the current state of management practices, business models, leadership and commercial diplomacy. A typical itinerary includes the major business and government centers, such as Shanghai and Beijing, and a second- or third-tier city, affording students an opportunity to have a diverse exposure to this strategically important market.

Sample company visits include:
Lenovo, Shanghai Krupp Stainless, hiSoft, DFJ Dragon Fund, Alibaba, YeePay, Peter’s Tex Mex, HOK, Motorola, Borg-Warner, Beilun Port, Citigroup, RDA Micoelectronics, Ford Motor, Social Venture Group, UPS – Public Affairs, Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable, Hisense, Coca-Cola, YRC Logistics and many more.
