International field trips

As an integrated part of the program, we do two to three international field trips. This means we bring the classroom into new environments and contexts to enhance your learning. For us, a fundamental part of this education is the value of perspectives. Visiting different markets and applying theories and models in a variety of contexts is an essential part of learning.

Our program weeks in other locations combine lectures and company visits, and we visit other business schools and/or universities. For the program starting in December 2021, we are planning to go to Riga, Latvia, and our sister school SSE Riga, during campus week 2, in January 2022. The focus of the week is International Economics and Business Law. This field trip is part of our modules The Business Context and Leading Global Business. 

During the fall of 2022 one campus week, is planned to be held in Asia. We work together with one of our partner schools in the region, and on-campus learning will be combined with company visits and guest speakers. The focus of the week is doing business in Asia, Business Strategy and developing skills for leading international companies and teams. This field trip is a part of the modules Value Creation and Leading Global Business. Previous cohorts have visited Hong Kong/Shenzhen or Singapore.

We are planning for a third international field trip during the spring of 2023. This field trip will most likely go to the US and have a focus on disruptive industries, international marketing, business analytics and international career paths. This field trip is a part of the modules Value Creation, Leadership Challenges and Leading Global Business. Previous cohorts have visited Silicon Valley.

Our international field trips may be located in areas and/or countries that require permits or visas in order to enter. Since our participants come from many different countries it is solely the participant’s responsibility to find out what is required in their specific case, and if necessary, to apply for and to undertake any actions needed in order to obtain such permits or visas.
