Global Modular Courses

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the School has put GMCs on hold and will instead offer three Global Virtual Courses (GVCs) in 2020-2021. All will be open to MBA, Executive MBA, and undergraduate juniors and seniors. These modified or new courses are intended to provide unique educational experiences to students in a regional context that has particular resonance with the topic.

2020-2021 GLOBAL VIRTUAL COURSES

FNCE 896: Finance in Europe (0.5 CU) Syllabus
Professor Bulent Gultekin | Q2 Fall 2020 | Oct 22 – Dec 8, 2020 | Tue and Thu, 12:00pm – 1:30pm Eastern Time

Registration for the GVCs is open until Monday, September 28 at 2:00pm EDT.  You will be notified of the results of your request by October 5.

Please note you will need to have enough CU capacity in the respective semester in order for us to register you for the course.

We will do our best to accommodate all demand for these courses and will resort to a lottery (with preference given to seniors and students who did not participate in a GMC last year) if the courses are oversubscribed.

If you have questions, please email Lee Kramer at lkramer@wharton.upenn.edu

Global Modular Courses (GMCs) are offered in an intensive workshop format over three to seven days during school breaks. Open to MBA, Executive MBA and undergraduate juniors and seniors,* these modular courses are intended to provide unique educational experiences to students in a regional context that has particular resonance with the topic. 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. Each year, a variety of courses are offered in different countries around the world.
