Global Immersion and Venture Programs at The Lauder Institute

Immersions are academic opportunities not only to see places but to become part of them, engaging with people in an authentic, meaningful way, recognizing cultural differences, and learning to navigate across and through them.

Unlike standard study abroad opportunities offered by international MBA programs, the summer immersion and short-term immersions organized by the Lauder Institute are essential to earning the joint MBA/MA or JD/MA degree. Required for graduation, these immersions are a key component of students’ developing into global business leaders.

All Lauder immersions, whether required or optional, are integrated into the Lauder curriculum, comprehensive in terms of the regions and themes covered, and inclusive of Lauder alumni.
