A Global Immersion is a concise, practice-based experience abroad whereby students learn about business from a comparative global perspective led by an experienced Fox faculty member as part of a customized 3-credit course offered in the spring or fall semester. Among many other benefits, students who participate in a Global Immersion course take away valuable skills in cross-cultural business understanding, learn about unique entrepreneurial environments, and understand distinct governance and institutional practices across global business environments. This initiative continues the push by Fox to expand our global footprint and to give our students the tools that they need to excel in the increasingly global marketplace.
