Combining world class entrepreneurial teaching with understanding of three diverse global markets, the GEP prepares you to recognize and define the changes critical to growing businesses in a competitive market place. The program places great emphasis on the interaction of the theoretical and practical aspects of entrepreneurial management in a global environment. On each continent, you will work on a semester-long consulting project for a local company with students from other countries, reinforcing teamwork on a global level and helping you acquire practical experience in addition to academic knowledge. Through the whole year, you will study, live and work on three different continents with students from all over the world.

A mixture of case studies, lectures, coaching sessions, group projects, and cultural events ensure a rigorous and complete learning experience.
