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."
