Program: Community Development in Context: Girls' Education in the Mara Region, Tanzania
"Traveling to Tanzania was not just an education for the students, but also for me. Our social innovation work was combined with activities to learn more about the Mara region, including visits to schools, a sustainable farm and a safari through the Serengeti. Learning about different cultures is very important for our School of Management students as they will most likely be working in an international environment after graduation."

Program: Social Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership in Ghana (medical component), January 2018
"Working in Ghana with the UB business and medical team was an interesting, challenging and wonderful experience. Providing medical care to those in a remote village was challenging, but we learned to do what we can with limited resources. Working with UB students and others, meeting Ghanaians and learning about their culture, and helping others with significant needs made for an enjoyable and worthwhile experience."

Program: International Business in China and Hong Kong
"It has been a pleasure and honor to be involved with the annual School of Management MBA China trip, first as an MBA student and now leading the trip. The experience has expanded my horizons and built my career over the years, and it is always heartwarming to see students on the trip develop a new view of the world. International perspective is more important than ever in today's competitive global business world. I commend students who are bold enough to step out of their comfort zone and immerse themselves in another culture, and look forward to hearing their wonderful stories that come out of the class and trip."
Clinical Associate Professor, Management Science and Systems
Program: The Business of Disney
"Leading the Business of Disney experience for a wonderful group of UB students provided me with the unique opportunity to combine my professional and personal passions in a way I never imagined! Disney’s rich history, culture, innovation, exceptional guest service and a secret sauce often referred to as the “Disney magic” makes it the perfect living case study. During our trip to the Walt Disney World Resort, valuable business lessons came alive and inspired students to take risks and pursue their dreams."

"I had the honor of visiting the Baltic States with a group of inquisitive and positive UB students. It was an invaluable experience in which we learned about a new culture and met new friends. The companies we visited showcased just how much innovation and creativity fuels that region."
