US Trip Blog 2012.
“Our study trip to Asia was certainly a highlight of this MBA program - in more than one way. On the one hand, the trip was our last big event as a class, and we used the time to celebrate our achievements and the friendships which grew during the countless weekends spent together. On the other hand, the exposure to Asian culture was very intense. and I was able to take away many learnings. which help me today in my daily business. As Unilever grows at double digit levels in Asia, I have a lot of contact points in the region, due to my global IT Innovation role. The Asia Trip (as well as the preparation module), increased my cultural awareness. It also deepened our understanding of how to organise a supply chain in Asia. Since January of this year, I have a Chinese team member based in Shanghai, and I’m happy to see that I can translate what we learned in classroom sessions into real life.”
