Eller MBAs travel to Vietnam, Singapore, Chile, and Argentina

Eller MBAs had two international trips to choose from over winter break. One group of students travelled to Vietnam and Singapore, while another combination of Full-Time and Evening students journeyed to Chile and Argentina. 

Both trips exposed students to the unique economic, political, and cultural environments present in these important areas.  During the 10-day excursions, students met with top executives from various government agencies and corporations that represented a broad range of industries. 

“I had the pleasure of attending the Southeast Asian trip with seven other Full-Time MBA students and seven Evening MBA students,” says first-year Justin Hart. “The highlight of my experience was visiting Saigon. Vietnam opened my eyes to the amazing growth currently taking place in Southeast Asia and to the unique blend of cultures that are present in so many Asian cities.” 

The students met with leaders of multinational corporations to discuss global expansion. “These experiences will undoubtedly provide me with insight that I’ll be able to leverage for years to come,” Hart says.
