The theme of the first Global Business Trip is Sustainable Development and sees all Global MBA participants traveling together to Cape Town in South Africa. South Africa represents one of the most dynamic economies on the African continent and forms part of the BRICSA group of countries. Cape Town is an exciting, cosmopolitan hub which has long led the way for integration within South African society.
This week-long study trip is undertaken in partnership with the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB), South Africa's pre-eminent business school. The aim of the business trip is to give participants an opportunity to understand the specificities of the South African business environment and its ever-changing dynamics from close proximity.
This business trip is comprised of a range of class-based lectures presented by local experts at the University of Stellenbosch Business School complemented by a varied program of onsite company visits. Each business trip also includes time for MBA participants to gain a firsthand understanding of local culture and cuisine and of course to see some of the amazing tourist sites Cape Town has to offer.
