Study Tour Papers

Taking the classroom abroad provides Columbia MBA students with an exceptional international educational experience. To add greater intellectual depth to their study tour, students are encouraged to enter the Outstanding Chazen Study Tour Report contest. Students identify a current topic or question(s) specific to the region they are visiting. Using advanced readings and additional in-country research, they produce a six- to eight-page analysis providing real-time business knowledge related to the region.

The study tour paper project has been generously funded through the Chazen Insitute’s Heinz Dürr International Communication Fund.

From January 2012, this project has morphed into a blog. Please click here for updates from Chazen Travels.
