Global Insight Expeditions

What are they?

Global Insight Expeditions (GIXs) bring together students and faculty in experiential courses that take place around the world. The aim of GIXs is to help prepare students to lead across cultures by immersing them in a new country. Each begins with classroom sessions on Tuck’s campus. Students then spend March break traveling with a faculty member in a country outside the U.S. During travel, students interact with corporations, entrepreneurial ventures, non-profits, governments, and local people from different walks of life. After the travel period, students complete a course project.
