What Have Past Participants Said About This Program?

"It was just fantastic.  It is so rare to be able to get an opportunity to get true exposure to business in the Middle East, but it seems increasingly crucial as both a market and a space for growing our understanding of other cultures, faiths and political models."

Aamir Imam (Class of 2019) shared his reflections from the Darden Worldwide Course to Dubai and Bahrain in this blog post.
