The Vanderbilt Business Executive MBA program offers two tracks, Executive Edge and Global Immersion. Students in the Global Immersion track spend their second year learning alongside an international cohort of approximately 60 working professionals from four prestigious business schools, including Vanderbilt Business. Global Immersion students participate in four international residencies that last for nine days each; the second one takes places at the Fundação Instituto de Administração (FIA) in São Paulo, Brazil.
Marketing Director Amy Katz sat down with Executive MBA student Matt Pearsall after the São Paulo residency to get his thoughts on how the Global Immersion track is progressing. They discuss working on international teams, his capstone strategy project, a surprise helicopter ride, and more.
