We presented our initiative to the judges and won FIRST PLACE!!! Not only are we international champions, we are also the first group of all women to have presented in this competition and won! We ended up having some difficulty heading home due to flight cancellations from weather, but we are finally back home! Thank you to everyone who followed our journey and supported us throughout our campaign! Keep an eye out for us and continue to follow us on our social media pages because although the competition is over, we aren't done yet!

Jason Benagh - Executive MBA Trip to Dubai

Overall, the experience was magnificent. The exposure to business in Dubai both small and large was fascinating. I have toured other countries and even participated in a trade mission to Egypt for a printing convention. I had been in free zones then, but I had no comprehension of what exactly that meant for me as a buyer or for the companies located there.  This is a testament to both the trip itself, and the program as a whole. The added benefit of this trip was to spend time with the cohort that had met in person only once before. I know there will be lifelong friendships from this program, and I look forward to working with my classmates in the future.

EMBA International Business trip to Vietnam:

Ho Chi Minh City-Day Six Part Two

Note: Our Executive MBA classes (online and on-campus) are in Vietnam from October 18th-25th for their international trip and will be blogging periodically.

Ho Chi Minh City-Day Six Part One

Today some of us spent time exploring the countryside of Vietnam through a spectacular bus and boat tour of the Mekong Delta. It was a very different experience from the bustling city life of Ho Chi Minh City.We had seen many cemeteries in the family household farmlands during the 1.5 hours of bus ride from the Ho Chi Minh City to the Mekong Delta.

Ho Chi Minh City-Day Five

Today, we visited IBM Vietnam. The office in IBM Vietnam was very nice and the speech was great. The country leader for IBM was Do Thi Huong Tra, a very impressive lady who shared her experience with us.  It was yet another example of women in leadership in Vietnam which we found a bit surprising.
