Trip focuses on succesful, high-growth companies

In Istanbul, the 18 students, along with program executive director Charles Jacobina, visited the Istanbul Stock Exchange and Seker Securities (where the group was interviewed by Bloomberg TV), as well as the offices of Deloitte, the U.S. Commercial Service, and the Turkish American Business Association. In Ireland, the group visited Apple and Pfizer in Cork, and Intel and Microsoft in Dublin.

High-growth companies are the focus of the international residency, Jacobina says. “The trip gives students a first-hand look at successful business strategies in other countries. Students get to see how the local environment affects business and experience aspects of international culture.”
