Class of 2013 EMBA Students International Trip to South Africa

EMBA Class 28 Table Mountain 

With 18 months of rigorous studies under their belt, the Executive MBA Class of 2013 traveled to South Africa as one of the capstone requirements of their 20-month experience. “The global immersion aspect of our program is always enlightening and often life-changing for our students.  There are many cultural, social, and even economic aspects of global business that just cannot be learned in the classroom” says Assistant Dean Deborah Hewitt.    With stops in Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg, not only did the students learn about the mechanics of doing business in South Africa, but the essence of goodness in a country riddled with contradictions.
