In an increasingly global economy, international experience for Indiana University MBA candidates comes from hands-on work in the field as much as the classroom. A group of students, led by Dr. Phil Powell, travel to Peru to help local entrepreneurs tackle business challenges using cutting edge business practices. The Kelley MBA GLOBASE initiative provides a unique social enterprise experience by partnering with Peruvian businesses to make a global impact.

Days in Cusco

After our presentations, we enjoyed a wonderful cocktail hour and celebratory dinner. Both GLOBASE students and partner organizations were able to unwind after a long week of hard work. It was a great time to enjoy the friendships we had made and remember the many rewarding moments of the project.

At 5:00 a.m. the next day we left the Grand Faraona Hotel and headed to the airport. After a short flight we made it to the picturesque city of Cusco.

Our guides showed us some amazing sites. While we were not able to visit Machu Picchu as we had originally planned (due to mudslides knocking out the railroad line), we enjoyed seeing the city of Cusco, Saqsaywaman, and the Sacred Valley.

Thank you to everyone who helped make GLOBASE a success this year! We look forward to seeing the results of our recommendations and GLOBASE projects in Peru, Ghana and India in 2011.
