Rumors have it that the world we’ll inherit after this critical beginning of 2020 will be a world different from before and Covid-19 happened to be the turning point. Can this theory be trusted? And what lies ahead of us as systems have been profoundly impacted by the hibernation of the global economy? In this webinar, we will address the near term macro- and micro- impacts of the COVID19 pandemic and then focus on strategies for life beyond this global crisis.

This unique online Masterclass will be followed by a Q&A session with Hult’s Director of Enrollment. Learn first-hand experience from students around the world and the benefits a global degree can offer you during these challenging times.

Join us and get to know your future classmates before your program starts. Let’s get together online—share our goals and expectations, and get excited about what the future holds for you at Hult.

What our students say

Vanessa Macho Cibrian

Hult is one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I now consider myself a better professional, with enough energy and confidence in myself to enter the competitive world of international business. The MIB is not only intense academically, it is also intense in the quantity and quality of friendships that you can make in such a short time.
