The College of Business Administration is offering a study abroad trip to Africa during the upcoming summer. The interest meeting will take place on Nov. 22 in COBA.
The trip, though hosted by the College of Business, is also in partnership with the Griggs Center for Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy. The trip and meetings are open to all students who are interested; the meeting on Friday will go over things such as an overview of the program, the itinerary, travel dates, application details and pictures from the scouting trip that took place before the inclusion of the trip into COBA’s program.
Dr. Sarah Easter, a professor in COBA, will be leading the trip and teaching classes as well.
“This will be an exciting and full three weeks of learning, traveling and embarking on cross-cultural adventures in the southern part of Africa,” Easter said. “I will be teaching ‘MGMT 419: Global Entrepreneur’ on the campus of African Christian College (ACC) located in Eswatini, previously known as Swaziland. We will also be taking two excursion trips to Kruger National Park, a well-known safari, as well as Cape Town, both in South Africa.”
The summer trip will last a total of two weeks in Eswatini and as mentioned above will take expeditions in addition to schooling at ACC order for students to cap off the overall culturally transformative experience.
“This experience will provide a rich, cross-cultural experience where students will be able to closely interact with ACC students from over 10 different African nations, both inside and outside the classroom for a two week period,” Easter said. “Plus, they will have the chance to go on a highly regarded African safari and take in the stunning views of Eswatini and Cape Town, South Africa. It will be a fun and transformative summer experience.”
Students with any questions are encouraged to attend the interest meeting or contact the Griggs Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
