Asia Leadership Trek

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.

The trek, which is Harvard parlance for student-led socio-economic, political and cultural tours of a country or region has played an essential role in the Harvard University graduate school experience. The original Asia Leadership Trek 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, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Columbia Business School, and the Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The trek has since evolved to include opportunities for the public.

There is no better way to understand the world than active on-the-ground engagement. These one-of-a-kind study tours take leaders to locations all across Asia and expose them to the region through active engagement and knowledge sharing of best practices, and is fast becoming an emerging model for 21st century learning.
