MBAs explore Scandinavia

A dozen Evening MBA students explored the management of international business operations and logistics during two weeks in Finland, Sweden, and Denmark in June. The students visited companies — KONE, Suunto, Stora Enso, AstraZeneca, Volvo Trucks, Qlik, LEGO, Carlsberg, and Maersk — as well as UNICEF. The program included briefings from embassy representatives before departure and cultural outings while abroad. It was developed and led by Barbara Hoopes, associate professor of business information technology, who began such programs in 2003. Noting that it was the 10th time she had led the program, Hoopes said, “It is one my favorite things to do for Pamplin. Every trip I feel I learn as much as the students.”
