Global Business Immersion study tour – Winter 2018 – Russia

The College of Business and Economics is offering an in-country intensive course, CBEA3066, which includes a faculty-led 10 day study tour to St. Petersburg, Russia during the winter break in July 2018 (summer in Russia).

The Russian study tour, facilitated in partnership with St. Petersburg State University, will include diverse elements comprising prominent lectures from academics on past and present Russian economy, politics and business; guest lectures from Russian business leaders and innovative start-up business owners; and cultural visits to world treasures such as the Hermitage, Peterhof Palace and Mariinsky Theater that will enrich students' understanding of the fundamentals of Russian values. The tour will also feature field trips to family-based, state-owned, and joint-venture companies, including both 'Soviet' and modern Russian corporate environments. Participants will gain insights into the question of 'What is Russia?' from panel discussions and debates with Russian business leaders and academics.
