The program began with a month-long 'toolbox' Immersion module.

This period of introduction and orientation put students firmly in the right mindset from day one with lectures, seminars, and workshops to launch the program, and equip them with the fundamental skills they needed going forward.

Immersion was incredibly rewarding – we learned an invaluable set of skills while evolving, and learning more about our future friends and business partners.

Campus speakers

Be exposed to the world’s most influential business people.

Our Global Speaker Series gives students the opportunity to hear directly from many of the people changing today’s business world. It’s also a great forum to ask questions about the latest business practices and gain valuable insights into other industries. In the past, Hult has welcomed thought leaders such as Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple), Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter), Arianna Huffington (founder and editor of The Huffington Post), and Muhammad Yunus (Nobel Peace Prize Winner) to share their inspirational stories and the lessons they have learned on the way to the top. These sessions offer invaluable insight into cutting-edge business trends, and provide access to the people who are defining the shape of business.

Professional guests

Entrepreneurship in the real world.

Learning through experience is fundamental to all aspects of our programs, not just project work. Throughout the core program professors not only bought their own experience to the classroom, students were exposed to company executives and entrepreneurs who joined as guest speakers, set assignments, and worked on mini projects with students. This not only gave students exposure to the local business community, but gave them insights into the current issues they were facing in the marketplace and helped them apply what they had learned in class to real-world scenarios.

There’s a difference between education and experience—and it was experience I wanted. No other Masters program provides students with the opportunity to apply skills like Hult does.
