*Air fares are a reasonable estimate and considering Geneva as the point of departure, but are subject to fluctuations either way, considering standard and class of travel, departure airport and any traveller loyalty arrangements that might apply.

**While on Discovery Expeditions, all participants must stay in the same hotel as designated by IMD. The EMBA program actively negotiates favorable packages for room rates and the use of the meeting facilities on-site. This is also critically important for the effective delivery of the program.
