What Have Students Said About This Program?
"I enjoyed the diversity of experience between visiting companies, museums, townships, and the park. This was a great well-rounded experience of the country."
"South Africa is in an interesting place in their history, both economically and culturally. Going to South Africa helped me understand a bit more about emerging markets, their advantages and disadvantages and how businesses function in light of this. I had a great time with my classmates and professors, and learned a lot along the way."
