Executive MBAs journey to India and South Africa for Global Residencies

By Lauren Wallace-

On 5-11 November, the Executive MBA Class of 2018 travelled to India for their final global residency. While in India, they took classes, heard from various company executives and guest speakers, and visited several cultural sites. Some of the companies represented were Eureka Forbes, UPS and The Oberoi Group, and Darden alumni VN Dalmia (MBA ‘84) and Akash Premsen (MBA ‘08) also joined the program to present to the group.

Simultaneously, the Executive MBA Class of 2019 travelled to South Africa for their first global residency. The group of students, faculty and staff spent time in Cape Town, where they visited iconic Table Mountain, and Johannesburg, where they heard from Group Five and the South African Football Association. To top off their visit, the group toured “Soccer City” (FNB Stadium).
