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 third one takes places at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City, Mexico.
Amy Murphy sat down with Executive MBA student Jenna Watson after the Mexico residency to get her thoughts on how the Global Immersion track is progressing. They discuss learning from professors at different schools, working in cross-cultural teams, and sightseeing in Mexico City.
