A group of Northwest Nazarene University’s MBA students and professors will be traveling to Panama and on into Costa Rica during NNU’s spring break March 19-23. The goal of the trip is to enhance the student’s study of international business and economics as part of “Managing in a Global Economy” coursework and understanding of global business.
Panama City is quickly becoming the business hub of Latin America. While in Panama they plan to visit the Panama Canal, an indigenous native community that is working to become self-sufficient through eco-tourism, as well as visiting the site of a new international terminal being planned for major air transport into a newly designed city on the Pacific coast.
In Costa Rica, the group looks forward to observing a nation that has become the number one eco-tourist nation in the world. They also plan to visit coffee and banana plantations, volcanic eco-systems and beach destinations created for world tourism. This trip will provide a unique view of how cultural differences affect political, social and business dealings.
Those traveling will be students Deborah and Michael Fantaski, Dena and Aldin Nadarevic and Corey Eyre, and professors Dr. Ron Galloway, Dr. Karen Jones and Dr. Sam and Lois Dunn.
