Immerse yourself in an international business environment


Nothing compares to the real-world business situations that the Global Business Experiences (GBEs) present. 


Unquestionably a highlight of the programme, you apply the frameworks you have studied to organisations in the emerging and developed markets around the world. Flourish outside your comfort zone by pushing yourself into unfamiliar territory and working with classmates from different cultures and industries.


No GBE is the same. The theme, assessment and format of these intensive and hands-on experiences depends on the location. Every GBE is faculty-led, academically-focused, relevant, fast-paced and highly rewarding.


Where will your experience take you?


Past locations have included the USA, South Africa, China, India and Turkey. Students complete a week long assignment, which reflects that country’s unique business profile.

The GBE week consists of faculty lectures, guest speakers, site visits, workshops, panels, company visits and opportunities to engage with local London Business School alumni in the region.

Whether you are looking to fill a knowledge gap, or understand business practice in a particular country, you choose the location that works for you.
