Nothing compares to the real-world business situations that our Global Business Experiences (GBEs) present.
Unquestionably a highlight of the programme, GBEs allow you to apply the frameworks you've studied to organisations in the emerging and developed markets around the world. Flourish outside your comfort zone by pushing yourself into unfamiliar territory and working with classmates from different cultures and industries.
The week long programme consists of faculty briefings, guest speakers, site visits, workshops, panels, company visits and opportunities to engage with local LBS alumni in the region.
Academic or project work will help you to accelerate and develop your learning. Engage in debate on a hot topic in the finance industry, support a micro-entrepreneur with a business plan, or help a tech start-up tackle a pressing business issue.
Where will your experience take you?
No GBE is the same. The theme, assessment and format of these intensive and hands-on experiences depends on the location. Every GBE is faculty-led, academically-focused, relevant, fast-paced and highly rewarding. Whether you are looking to fill a knowledge gap, or understand business practice in a particular country, the GBEs are an exciting opportunity for applied, experiential learning.
Current locations include South Africa, India, China, Myanmar, Peru and Brazil
