With only two courses left before completing her MBA, Amanda Ewertowski has much to share about her experience as a student at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Amanda has directly applied the insights and networking opportunities offered during her MBA program to launch a new non-profit organization with a goal to create educational impact and opportunities for students around the world.
Earlier this month, a group of ambitious MBA students made the journey to Bogotá, Colombia, as part of Lake Forest Graduate School of Management’s Global Focus program. Selected for its steadily built infrastructure and solid potential for economic growth, Colombia provided participants with a meaningful, on-the-ground experience of its business, political and social climate.
The largest city in Turkey, Istanbul is the heart of the country’s economic, cultural, and historical roots. Settled between Asia and Europe, this unique city is home to a diverse group of residents. As a country, Turkey is a member of various international organizations, such as the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), which has contributed to its rapid economic growth and evolvement. As the commercial center of southeastern Europe, the Middle East and Eurasia, Turkey is becoming an increasingly important economic and diplomatic country in the region. These are some of the many reasons why we’ve selected Istanbul as Lake Forest Graduate School of Management’s next Global Focus trip destination in June 2015.
