Global Business Treks are a great way for you to connect with companies in the United States that have global operations.

Global Business Treks

The treks range from one-day to five-day visits and take place locally in San Antonio or regionally in areas like the Silicon Valley and New York City. These hands-on learning experiences will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a business topic, network with leading companies, engage with alumni and build your knowledge of global concepts.
