What will you do? This is what the Harvard Business School asks its applicants. Delivering and taking up challenges in the business world globally is a vision that the schools today envision to ensure for the MBA admits. Field Global Immersion is a complementary component to the MBA program at the World's leading Business Schools. Field Global Immersion is an integral part of the case study based curriculum in many leading schools. We will explore how it has impacted the school learning experience. Harvard Business School The FIELD Global Immersion (FGI) is a semester-long first-year (RC) MBA course. The course is a capstone of sorts, and it requires students to build on learnings from their first-year courses and apply them to real-world business problems. At the beginning of the semester students are paired with a Global Partner (GP) company in one of 16 cities that has a product or service challenge they would like the team to address with their local consumers. The course culminates in a one-week Immersion at the end of the semester, at which time students travel to their assigned Immersion location and meet in person with their GP and local consumers. To maximize the experience, students are asked to travel to a city and country in which they have no significant prior work, travel or life experience.
