Experience the 50

Management Practices in the United States

Gain global perspective—right here in the United States.

Our Experience the 50 programs allow you to explore various industries and see how you can make an impact in major cities across the country. Past experiences have provided an inside look at the financial world in Washington, D.C., Disney’s global business model in Orlando, and the tech space in Silicon Valley—and that’s just the beginning.

"Visiting Disney was truly inspiring and allowed me to witness things about Walt Disney World that I would never have been able to discover on my own. Learning what goes into making the Disney magic every day is remarkable. Every student who has a connection to Disney or wants to learn about a thriving business should experience this."

— Danielle Zalta, BS ’19
