Cox Leadership May2011

In May 2011 five groups of students traveled to Europe (Frankfurt, Bratislava and London), Asia (Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai), Southeast Asia (Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai), India (Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai) and Latin America (Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo) with the Global Leadership Program at the Cox School of Business.

Detour in London

An update from Eric, MBA ’12 with a concentration in finance and strategy, who traveled to India with the Cox Global Leadership Program:

There’s nothing like starting off with a little adversity. Our flight was late departing from D/FW, we made good time across the pond, and then Heathrow got us. Between the security lines, a long bus ride between terminals, and a “Home Alone”-esque dash to the gate – WE MISSED OUR FLIGHT!

We are now being routed through Mumbai on the way to Bangalore, and we
will get a preview of Kingfisher Air connecting us to Bangalore.

In the meantime, we have the distinct privilege of hanging out in Heathrow for a quarter day, and moving a group of 14 sans cell phones is proving to be a challenging task.

Hopefully some fish and chips are in my future. Stay tuned; this is quickly turning out to be quite an adventure.
