MBA Global Treks

The world comes to Tepper. And Tepper returns the favor.

Our student-led Global Treks provide opportunities to immerse yourself in new cultures, gain first-hand insights into international business practices and emerging trends, build connections with Tepper classmates and alumni, and bring home an infinitely broader perspective on an increasingly interconnected world.

And it's all while having the time of your life.

“I went to Colombia with 20 classmates and many of the sites we toured were recommendations from our Colombian classmates. They were so excited to share their culture and their country with us. It really made the experience much more unique and intimate. I didn’t feel like a tourist, and I felt like I had a local guide to one of the coolest countries in the world.”

Experience New Cultures and Community

Taking place between the fall and spring semesters or during spring break, trekkers gain experiences, both corporate and cultural. Touring local sights and enjoying the culture (and food) is paramount. Meetings with local executives and alumni offer an opportunity to gain insights into international business practices and trends.

Full-time and part-time MBA students are invited to participate.
