Consulting Abroad Program

As part of the Global MBA curriculum, all GMBA students participate in the Consulting Abroad Program (CAP) during the spring semester of their first year of study. CAP is an action-learning international program in which teams of GMBA candidates, with the support of expert GWSB faculty mentors, apply what they have learned in the classroom to find sustainable solutions to business problems faced by their Global Partners.

Locations

Project work varies by location and topic each year, as Global & Experiential Education seeks diversity in geographic region and business sector when evaluating opportunities for CAP engagements.
