2010 study tour in review

(Tina Bassir, Associate Director)

Wow, what a great experience – visiting Santiago and Buenos Aires on the TMMBA Study Tour was outstanding! The final assignment for the students is to present an overview of the trip including highlights, key take-aways, photos, and I’m sure, lots of stories.  Showcasing the TMMBA Study Tour is tonight at 6-8pm.

For me, this was my first big international trip; my new passport has received its first collection of stamps (from three countries in 12 days). The companies we visited were extremely interesting and represented a diverse range of industries. And it was a pleasure traveling with this group.  While I have many fond memories from the trip, here is a short photo story with a few highlights:

Eating delicious food. In Santiago, lots of fish and seafood. In Buenos Aires, steak, empanadas, and more steak.
