Weekend MBA Global Experience Week 2018

Explore business in an international market

As part of studying in an international and diverse class, you will be encouraged to adopt a global perspective. Today’s markets are no longer localised, competition is on a global scale and our teaching reflects this.

The Global Experience Week* is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the business environment of another country. Together with the rest of your class you will visit local and global companies, and meet Business School alumni based in that country. The Global Experience Week is an intensive exploration of a country’s business practices and challenges using company visits to learn through practical case studies.

2018 Global Experience Week in Cambodia and Vietnam

Global Experience Week Vietnam WMBA

This year, the cohort went to Southeast Asia for their Global Experience Week, visiting Cambodia and Vietnam.

The 75 students met local investors, visited the factory of a fashion manufacturing company, spoke with entrepreneurs from the region, and learnt more about running a social enterprise like a business at a Cambodian charity.

2017 Global Experience Week in South Africa

Global Experience Week Africa WMBA

In 2017, the Weekend MBA class went to Cape Town in South Africa.

They visited local companies and organisations and heard from guest speakers, providing them with the opportunity to get a unique insight into the country’s economic and political situation, its history and the challenges and opportunities it currently faces.

Extending my network to span people from multiple industries, backgrounds and beliefs is not something I could have come by without having done the Weekend MBA programme.
