Leadership is a central challenge for today’s global corporations. Leaders of organizations around the world, face many of the same business problems. There is no one formula for effective leadership, aspiring leaders must learn to develop a clear, coherent and thoughtful leadership philosophy. One which inspires and motivates individuals from diverse backgrounds to work hard and deliver consistent returns. As future leaders of the business world, UW Bothell School of Business students must learn how to do business in a global market place.
Approximately 20-30 students and a faculty advisor explore examine the key drivers of globalization and the major challenges that countries face as they respond to an increasingly globalized environment.
Trip preparation is a key component to all UW Bothell School of Business study trips. Several sessions are held prior to departure. The session topics include guest speakers and facilitated discussions of the economic status, political climate, history, culture and business etiquette of the host country.
Trips generally have a theme or particular focus. Recent themes have included local NGOs, free-trade zones and social responsibility.
