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.

Q4 Spring 2021 Global Virtual Courses (March 15 – April 29)

LGST 89x:  Forming Business Relationships in Emerging Economies:  Russia (0.5cu)
Professor Philip Nichols | Mondays & Wednesdays, 10:30AM-12:00PM EDT | Syllabus

MGMT 89x: Global Management of Digital Platforms (0.5 cu)
Professor Mauro Guillen | Mondays, 7:00PM-10:00PM EDT | Syllabus

MGMT 89x:  Overcoming Racial and Gender Inequality around the World (0.5 cu)
Professors Mauro Guillen and Nancy Rothbard | Tuesdays, 10:30AM-1:30PM EDT | Syllabus

OIDD 89x:  Contemporary Global Supply Chains in China (0.5 cu)
Professors Gad Allon, Santiago Gallino and Edwin Keh | Tuesdays, 7:00PM -10:00PM EDT | Syllabus

Registration for the GVCs is open until Sunday, December 6 at 11:59pm EST.  You will be notified of the results of your request(s) by December 14.

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 gmc-admin@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.
