The Asia Leadership Trek IX (Summer 2017) or ALT 2017 will be making its way to seven cities in five countries across Asia with visits to Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Dhaka from May 28 to June 17, 2017.
Organized by the Center for Asia Leadership (CAL), the ALT 2017 offers a once-in-a-lifetime journey across Asia to 15 scholars from prestigious Ivy League schools from the United States including Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Business School, Harvard Graduate School of Education, MIT Sloan of Management, Northwestern, and the Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
With the theme “Vision and Value Creation: Charting the Path to Tomorrow’s Asia,” the one-month study and service program enables the participants or Trekkers an exclusive access to engage with key opinion leaders in government, business, and local social enterprises.
The ALT 2017 will be the ninth ALT organized by CAL and gives Trekkers the chance to gain firsthand accounts and insights into the challenges and opportunities impacting Asia. Through the ALT 2017, Trekkers will acquire a better understanding of Asia as well as explore current and emerging trends in fundamental political, economic, and social forces that shape the fastest growing region in the world.
