Global and Domestic Immersions

Broaden your horizons with an immersive experience

Choose a Kelley Direct immersive experience or online course and put yourself at the center of a client’s real-world business situation. You might devise a plan for a small business to identify new markets or consult with Fortune 500 executives on ways to rethink their pricing strategy or supply chain. Through your travels and work, you’ll gain new perspectives about business—and the world.

As part of a student team dealing with an unfamiliar locale and culture, a domestic or global immersion experience will accelerate development of your global executive leadership skills as you quickly adapt your business knowledge and make decisions to deliver solutions to complex challenges.

  • Innovative thinking and entrepreneurship
  • Consulting
  • Project management
  • Cultural and emotional intelligence
  • Data collection, market, and operations research

My team and I worked to evolve the Athens Olympic legacy, studying global communications and Greek culture. We returned to the US with a genuine appreciation for Greece—its journey as a culture and its Olympic history. I am forever grateful to Kelley for making this life-changing, extraordinary opportunity a reality.
