Zicklin’s Executive MS curriculum and format are designed to give students opportunities for learning, locally and globally. In general, Zicklin faculty incorporate a global perspective whenever possible and specifically address global issues. The program’s culminating experience is an international study tour which broadens students’ vision by exposing them to a country with a different history, a different culture, different challenges, and different ways of doing business. Recent study tours have been to South Africa, Vietnam, Singapore, and China. The greatest value of the experience is that by going far outside of our familiar environment, students are first challenged to comprehend the unique history and problems of a very different society, and are then further challenged to think seriously about how local businesses meet the problems and needs of their people.
