Memory Lane from the International trip with EMBA 2011


Greg DeCapio EMBA 2011 stumbled across a recent article on the top tourist attractions in the world. Coming in at #10 in the list is the Grand Bazaar, visited by EMBA 2011 on their International Residency trip to Istanbul, after first spending several days in Budapest. Apparently Vanderbilt’s 50 students were among the 15 million others who visited the amazing Grand Bazaar– the world’s oldest shopping mall! The complete article is at:

Here are a few of our favorite pictures from our 2011 residency, which included visits with some amazing organizations, including:

  • In Budapest: Zwack, Coca Cola Hellenic, GE Lighting, Mattel and Brown Forman/Jack Daniel’s, Corvinus University School of Management, Renault, and sight-seeing on the beautiful Danube and the old palaces and churches of this gorgeous town.

  • In Istanbul: Koc Industries, Central bank of Turkey, Turk Telecom, various temples, and the Grand Bazaar.


Now, we are busy planning the EMBA 2012 trip to China for spring 2012. In preparation, the students are reading Market Entry Strategies by Christopher Lymbersky and and One Billion Customers by James McGregor.
