Global Initiatives in Management
Global Initiatives in Management is an intensive global business leadership program founded and designed by Kellogg students. Teams of classmates plan and facilitate a challenging 10-week curriculum with a faculty adviser, and coordinate a two-week international field experience at the end of the term.
Once in their target country or region, the students meet with business and government leaders and conduct primary research for their final presentations and reports.
More than 400 students in the Full-Time, Part-Time and Executive MBA programs participated in 11 GIM courses during the 2009 winter quarter. They explored topics ranging from microfinance in India to the electronic car industry in Japan to opportunities in renewable energy around the world.
By participating in GIM, Kellogg students gain valuable leadership skills and increase their awareness of the global business environment.
