Buenos Aires Itinerary

It’s hard to believe that it’s been three weeks since we returned from Buenos Aires. The second year MBA class was welcomed home with many project due dates looming quickly. Basically, that is my excuse for not putting up this information earlier. Anyway, here is our itinerary from the Argentina trip so you have some sort of idea what we do on our Global trips.

Buenos Aires was the second of our three required global trips. We were in Paris last spring, Buenos Aires a few weeks ago, and will be headed to China for our final trip this spring. All of these trips are very well organized and provide a nice way to learn outside of the classroom. Having said that….. here was our itinerary.
