The Asia Leadership Trek is a unique, overseas learning experience devoted to exploring the most important issues and cutting-edge ideas through engagement with political and business leaders, educational figures, entrepreneurs, and students. These one-of-a-kind study tours travel to locations all across Asia and expose individuals to the region through active engagement and knowledge sharing of best practices.
21ST CENTURY LEARNING
The trek, which is Harvard parlance for student-led socioeconomic, political and cultural tours of a country or region have played an essential role in the Harvard University graduate school experience. The original ‘Asia Leadership Treks’ organized by the Center for Asia Leadership began among students in the Harvard community and were exclusively for participants chosen from the greater Harvard graduate school community, the MIT Sloan School of Management, and the Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The trek program has been adapted by our Center and made available for the public.
There is no better way to understand the world than by active on-the-ground engagement. Through preparation, experience, and reflection – this learning journey is fast becoming an emerging model for 21st century learning.
