Professional MBA cohort reflects on travels to Cuba, Costa Rica

by | Aug 24, 2016

This summer, the group set out for 10 days of travel to both Cuba and Costa Rica to learn about international business and culture.

A group of University of Missouri–St. Louis students were among some of the first American citizens to travel to Cuba since the U.S. lifted its long-standing travel ban earlier this year.

Near the end of the Professional MBA cohort’s 21-month-long program of study this summer, the group set out for 10 days of travel to both Cuba and Costa Rica to learn about international business and culture.

Such international trips are becoming an anticipated staple of the College of Business Administration’s PMBA program, with another cohort set to explore Italy in 2017. In addition to Cuba and Costa Rica, PMBA cohorts have also traveled to China and Germany so far.

The Current’s editor-in-chief, Kat Riddler, recently caught up with several of the 2016 participants after their return to the States. To read the full feature, click here.
