A team of faculty and students from the School of Business got an international education this summer as they traveled to an island country off the coast of Africa to share their skills with locals.
Four students from the School of Business traveled to Zanzibar this summer for the two faculty-led experiences. During each three-week trip, two students and one faculty member taught youth ages 19 to 23 about the basics of business.
Working with youth from the Zanzibar Learning for Life Foundation (ZL4LF), the international setting fostered a unique learning environment for students to teach, mentor and assist locals with their business skills.
“This international opportunity provided our students with the chance to apply their knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom towards leading their own programming,” says Fiaz Merani, School of Business faculty member. “This allows them to become more culturally aware and appreciative of the diversity in international business practices.”
