International Field Study

International Field Study destinations are reviewed each year by the faculty and administration of the Sellinger School. An example of a past international field study involved students traveling to Beijing and Shanghai, China. Students compared American and Chinese approaches to foreign direct investment, and studied how law, affinity group regulation, ethical precepts, the media, and civil society incentivize companies to work toward improved social and economic conditions. ELMBA students have also traveled to Spain, Chile, Panama, and Peru, and will be traveling to Vietnam in 2018.

Domestic Field Study

Students have traveled to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Ca. to study emerging technology and to Washington, D.C to study the intersection of business and policy.

This was the highlight of the program for me, the development of self: understanding what I excelled at, what I needed to work on, as well as really discover what I could see myself doing in the upcoming years.
