PEMBA, 2012 

From May 27th to June 8th, a group of 21 MBA students along with Professor Jay Kim of the Operations and Technology Management department and Dave Veira of the Graduate Program Office traveled through Asia for the Asia Field Seminar.  The trip included PEMBA students from both the Charles River campus and the North Campus, and a few full-time students who were completing this trip as the last course of their MBA program.

In our exploration of Beijing, Shanghai, and Seoul, Professor Kim encouraged us to look at areas of opportunity in Asia in the current globalization movement.  Professor Kim also led by example in the importance of networking and maintaining strong alumni connections worldwide.
