Space on each trip is limited. Preference is given to those Northeastern graduate business students where the trip is an academic requirement. Applicants must rank order each trip in order of their preference and trips are generally assigned based on this preference and in the order in which a completed application is received. However, exceptions may be made in order to achieve program balance and to foster diversity among participants. The number of spaces allocated to any one of Northeastern’s graduate business programs may be limited.

Limited space may be made available to non-business students with specific experiences or career objectives relevant to the program outline.
