FOR FACULTY-LED TRIPS: There is a a pre-travel component often comprised or readings and company research, and it's combined with in-the-field international business exposure and networking opportunities led by a member of the Tuck faculty. The group visits a variety of business-related organizations (companies, universities, government offices), participate in cultural activities, and network with alums and other business people in casual settings. Students pay a program fee plus international airfare, personal expenses (including some meals), and immunizations and visas where relevant.

FOR SPAIN: The five-day course, taught by IE (Instituto de Empresa) Business School faculty on their campus in Madrid, Spain, is called “Doing Business in Europe.” It covers topics such as political development of the EU; the economic and regulatory odel of the EU; innovations and entrepreneurship; European renewable energy; and national champions in global markets. Students do not pay tuition; Tuck reciprocates by hosting a group of IE students in Hanover each October. Students pay their travel, food, and accommodation costs.
