Business on Site
Each module on the GEMBA HSG includes a Business on Site session. These sessions, which typically last a full day, have been specially designed to give participants an introduction to the business practices of the respective country or region and insights into the destination’s real business culture. Incorporating company visits, panel discussions and joint projects with local firms, the Business on Site sessions allow participants to apply previously acquired general management knowledge in an authentic business context. The Business on Site sessions thus provide a real-world setting in which the concepts, frameworks and tools studied on the GEMBA HSG can be applied and tested in practice. This enables participants to develop a more profound and nuanced understanding of the disparate economies, markets and businesses around the globe. Through this insight-oriented, practical approach, the sessions both consolidate and augment the ideas generated and analyzed in the case studies, project presentations and assignments.
