Largest Slate of Global Modular Courses Announced

GMC-Emerging Economies

In response to strong student demand, Wharton is offering 13 Global Modular Courses (GMCs) — its most ever — in 2012-2013. The courses range from one-half to full credit, depending on the length of the program.

GMCs expose students to a unique combination of local immersion, course concepts and emerging business issues. The topics and locations of these give students first-hand exposure to business challenges and opportunities in regions undergoing rapid change — for example, energy and infrastructure in Brazil, global supply chain management in China, and marketing in emerging economies such as India and China.
