Global Modular Courses (GMCs) are offered in an intensive workshop format over three to seven days during school breaks. Students learn applicable business opportunities and practice through project- and team-based experiential learning in a geographic location relevant to the subject matter. Each year, a variety of courses are offered in different countries around the world and Wharton juniors and seniors are eligible to apply.
GMCs expose students to a unique combination of local immersion, course concepts, and emerging business issues. The topics and locations of these courses give students first-hand exposure to business challenges and opportunities in regions undergoing rapid change — for example, energy and infrastructure in Brazil, global supply-chain management in China, and marketing in emerging economies such as India and China. In addition, GMCs enable students to work across degree programs (undergraduate, full-time MBA, and Executive MBA) and with students from host institutions.
The diversity of the student body coming from Wharton, each course’s ties to a local partner university, and the opportunity to engage with prominent regional leaders make GMCs extremely dynamic and exciting learning experiences for everyone involved.
The 2018-2019 courses will be posted in the fall semester.
