— May 18, 2013
In May of 2013, a group of executive MBA students traveled to Beijing and Hong Kong on a Global Study Tour. Highlights of the program included meetings with representatives from HSBC, Ralph Lauren Asia, Lenovo, PwC and Blue Ocean Network.
"China is full of opportunity and risk, and Hong Kong is a gateway to China," explained executive MBA student Lou Brothers. "This Global Study Tour took us to meet with the people who are making decisions about how to pursue that opportunity and manage that risk on a daily basis in a wide range of industries: banking, shipping, media, technology, manufacturing, etc. In addition to hearing from senior business leaders at multi-national firms and local start-ups, a few of us have come away with solid business leads to grow our existing companies. Talk about return on investment!"
