Suffolk University’s Travel Seminar Course is a unique opportunity for MBA students to travel to different places in the world. After Brexit, I thought London would be an interesting place to be and I was not disappointed. As part of the course, we got to visit many companies from small to large and learned about their perspective on how Brexit will turn impact them and how they are dealing with change. Some firms decided to wait as Brexit evolves, and the impact on their business is still inconclusive. On the other hand, some firms had already started their departure to the continent.
We had a lot of lively discussions with many high-ranked officers in the companies we visited. We learned about different opportunities that they were interested in and made many valuable connections. At the end of the course, we got to present a stock pitch to a portfolio manager at Fidelity Investments. We learned to work together effectively and most importantly to have fun doing it. I highly recommend London if you want to have the time of your life in the most dynamic city in the world right now.
