Executive MBA International Trip in 2019

Posted by Jeff Davis on May 9, 2019 2:21:24 PM

Not Your Average International Trip

The Executive MBA international experience is more than an international trip. You are immersed in  the culture of a new city, where traditions and general business practices may seem unusual or even exotic. That is one of the exact reasons we select the locations we do — to create a transformative experience for our EMBA students. In addition to company visits, tours, and presentations from senior management, your team will serve as a consultant to an international organization, applying your knowledge and expertise to a specific client project. This trip is like none you have experienced before.

None of these figures could have prepared us for the experiences ahead. On our first day in Taipei we were astounded by the kind-hearted nature of the locals. Having lived abroad for over a year in Europe, I was conditioned to refuse help on the street, out of fear of being taken advantage of. Here in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan, the opposite was true. The only trouble we found was that asking for help could result in a long conversation and relationship building taking up time needed for the task at hand.
