Faculty-led Program in Dubai and India - Winter

Embark on an unforgettable journey to Dubai, “the pearl of the Gulf,” and experience a perfect blend of tradition and modernity in this awe-inspiring, larger-than-life city. Or, check off a bucket list goal by visiting one of the world's seven wonders, the ultimate homage to love – the Taj Mahal in India. How about taking a pic in front of Burj Khalifa (Dubai, UAE), the world’s tallest building, or Hawa Mahal (Jaipur, India), renowned as one of the world's most photographed monuments? 

The UAE and India offer unique insights into vibrant economies, diverse cultures, and rich histories, providing you with invaluable and unforgettable learning experiences beyond the classroom and provide you with an advantage when seeking career opportunities.

Students will study the Dubai/Abu Dhabi and Indian business environment. This includes each country's current state of affairs and the historical context of each country in the global economy. Course discussions will cover the historical and current economic and business environment, cultural influences, and more. Students will learn how to conduct business in the program locations and will gain awareness of the influence of culture on important aspects of living and conducting business.
