Travel writing has been around nearly as long as travel itself. Landmarks of the genre include The Anabasis, Gulliver’s Travels, The Innocents Abroad and Travels with Charley. Now GWSB students are adding their own chapters to the long history of travel literature. Seven Global MBA candidates participating in the program’s International Consultancy Project (required of all first-year students) have filed reports from all corners of the world on the “Writers in Residency” blog. In 2011, first-year Global MBA candidates completed their international consultancies in Brazil, Ghana, Montenegro, Sweden, Turkey and Vietnam. The blog carries fascinating and informative first-hand accounts about learning to do business around the world.
The International Consultancy Project is built into the first-year curriculum for Global MBA candidates, and includes both an academic component taught on campus in Washington, D.C., and a two-week trip abroad during which students work with international clients. During the two weeks in-country, students work as business consultants for their client organizations. At the conclusion of this period, students present their business plans and final recommendations to each client.
