One of the most popular electives at Kellogg School of Management is the Global Initiatives in Management courses. More than 60% of Kellogg students enroll in these courses every year. Each class section chooses a country of focus and individual students choose target industries or economic sectors to study. Recent courses have focused on countries on six continents, with students studying industries ranging from e-commerce and pharmaceuticals to ecotourism and microenterprise. The class then works with a faculty advisor to plan the 10-week curriculum, invite relevant guest speakers from the country and from campus, and organize an intensive 2-week study trip to the country at the end of the quarter. During the study trip, students meet with business and government leaders, conduct research on their target industry in preparation for a final presentation, meet Kellogg alumni in the region, and are immersed the local language and culture. Kellogg views the program as a cornerstone in its efforts to build students’ awareness of the global business environment.
