International business - More than 40 countries were represented when the Graduate School of Business brought students from its Singapore and Barcelona campuses to Chicago in June for a week-long study session with their American counterparts. The annual event is a staple of Chicago's Executive M.B.A. Program-which allows working executives to earn their M.B.A.s part time-bringing students from its three campuses to socialize, network, and learn together in courses such as marketing, leadership, managerial decision making and negotiation, persuasive communication, and team dynamics.

The business school kicked off this year's program on Sunday, June 24, with a welcome reception and dinner at the downtown Gleacher Center, featuring Michael Hanley, MBA'89, of Price WaterhouseCoopers speaking on "Meta-Capitalism." After dinner the 254 students broke into groups at 8 p.m. and continued interacting through the week, spending days in the classroom and nights socializing and sight-seeing.

Although students from the Chicago and Barcelona campuses have participated in these gatherings since the Barcelona program began in 1992, the June event marks the first time that students from Singapore have joined them in Chicago. The Asian program opened its doors on September 14, 2000 ("Chicago Journal," December/00), making Chicago the only business school in the world with campuses on three continents.

Students in the Executive M.B.A. Program attend one week of classes per month while working in their profession. The week in Chicago is not the only time students from the three campuses will get together-future gatherings are planned in Singapore and Barcelona in the coming year.-C.S.
