Globalization close up: Global Executive MBA’s international residency to Asia
“It is impossible to understand globalization without venturing out into the world,” says Prof. Bodo B. Schlegelmilch. For this reason, the WU Executive Academy sends their MBA students all over the globe; the current class of the Global Executive MBA just came home from their “Asia Residency.” The exclusive study trip took them to Guangzhou, China, and Hyderabad, India, providing multi-facetted insights into these two very complex and heterogeneous economic cultures.
