20 Graduate Students Embarked on 2023 Trip

What Students Said About the 2023 Trip

“I can say without hesitation that it was an incredible experience that left a lasting impact on me, but what really made the trip stand out was the academic component. Meeting with esteemed business owners and management from renowned companies was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the thought-provoking discussions we had broadened my perspective on global issues.

Overall, the trip to Singapore was a transformative experience. It allowed me to learn, explore, and connect with other students.”
Edmundo Castillo, MBA Candidate.

“The trip to Singapore was fantastic. It allowed us to learn about culture, international business and life in a unique environment. I would heavily recommend that everyone in graduate school should participate in this or other study abroad programs as it presents a unique opportunity to expand horizons and experience a very different business environment than what we are used to.”
Jorge Calle (MBA ’23)

“The experience of the Singapore trip was overall fantastic. You quickly get an appreciation that business as you know it is conditioned by your prior experiences and surroundings, and immersing yourself in a totally different environment outside of that is thoroughly enlightening.”
Danny Coman (MBA ’23)

“Learning Abroad is the highlight of the MBA program experience. You get the opportunity for experiential learning and get to spend time with classmates and professors outside of the classroom setting.”
Quan Nguyen (MBA ’23)
