How and when should I register?
If you have decided on your destination you will need to secure your spot in the class. Trips are filled on a first come, first served basis.

To register, sign up for MBA 699C (if you're an MBA student) or MTECH 699 (if you're an MBATM student). In early June, you will receive a packet in the mail and via email with details on deadlines and other documents that you will need to submit to our office.
Can I bring my spouse or significant other?
Yes, provided there is space is available on the trip. Registration for spouses/significant others will take place after spring registration opens. On March 24, please send the name of your spouse to Baptiste or Diana and he or she will be added to a waiting list--again, on a first come, first served basis. Please note that spouses/significant others must attend ALL business visits and activities during the international context tour. The cost per spouse/significant other will be $4,250. You will be notified mid-June about whether your spouse/significant other will be able to join you on the trip.
Do I need a passport?
Yes! You will need a current passport that is valid for 6 months after your international context tour returns (April 18, 2015), according to federal regulations. If you don't have a passport, you should apply for one right away. It usually takes two months to receive your passport back.

You must show proof of a valid passport to the Graduate Business Programs Office by Friday, June 6, 2014 in order to participate in a trip.
