MBA in Peru

In recent years, the UAlbany executive-style Weekend MBA program has traveled to the Czech Republic, India, Germany, China and Chile.

This summer they returned to South America, this time to Peru.

In the banner photo above, the group is 200 meters underground, visiting the Southern Peaks Mining Condestable copper mine. The group also toured BBVA Bank, one of Peru’s largest financial institutions, UCP Backus and Johnston, the largest brewery in Peru, Prisma, which brings services to the underprivileged of Lima, and Camposol, which, to discourage the drug trade, encourages farmers to grow asparagus and avocados instead of coca. The group also braved altitude sickness to visit Machu Picchu. The students blogged about the trip at http://ualbanybusiness.blogspot.
