A View from Abroad – Project Nicaragua

WFU Business School Headshots 8-20-09

The Wake Forest University Schools of Business are fortunate to have an abundance of great students taking to the Internet to blog about their experiences. I was recently looking at the blog for first-year full-time MBA student Sandie Taylor (right) and came across an interesting discussion of her recent trip to Central America as part of Project Nicaragua.


Here is one great snippet from her post:

“My hope is that the entrepreneurs realize how much we, the students, are gaining from our experiences with them. It’s not all about us helping them improve their businesses, it’s about the entrepreneurs showing us the issues they face as they do business in a developing country and learning how their culture affects their values and how they run their companies.”

Visit Sandie’s blog to read more about her experience or visit the Project Nicaragua blog.
