Online Global Immersion Elective
Want something of substance to do over winter break? How about spending your mornings earning credit and exploring a different region of the world (and maybe a few evening activities)?
In collaboration with our partners at LAN (Leadership Academy Nepal), Rice Business Global has developed an innovative approach to virtual programming just for you. Start off with an overview of Nepal and Tanzania, and then choose a trek to dive deeper into one or the other of the countries. Learning modules will be a combination of live cultural sessions, high-quality interactions with local leaders, and group work that incorporates local engagement and virtual tourism activities.
