"One of the most valuable benefits of the Jenkins MBA program has been learning outside of the classroom through team assignments and collaboration. This immersive experience in Prague presented us the opportunity to push outside our comfort zones, ask challenging questions, and share insights with our fellow classmates throughout the week - both within the classroom setting and outside during our cultural experiences. 

Getting different view points from professionals in different industries and roles allowed me to expand beyond my own thought bubble. To be successful in leading others, it is vital to keep an open mind and understand people’s why." -Bonnie Landaverdy, MBA Student
"It was an amazing experience to learn about cultural differences across organizations and then hear about it from company leaders here in Prague. Despite the location, all companies are facing similar problems after covid and the economic turmoil and it was interesting to learn the different approaches everyone was taking." -Diana Douglas, MBA Student
“I have really enjoyed learning about and experiencing Czech culture this week. Leaders here face many of the same challenges we do in the United States. Hearing how they empower people and build trust in their organizations has been truly valuable.” -Ryan Bullock, MBA Student
"And It's a wrap- walking through the beautiful city of Prague to class every morning was amazing. Taking a leadership class in the Czech Republic was the best way to finish my MBA program. I got to learn different leadership styles and how building trust and connection with coworkers can prevent conflicts." -Vandana Jindal, MBA Student
“It’s hard to single out the best part of the NC State Study Abroad program here in Prague because it’s been such a great experience from a cultural standpoint and from a business and intellectual standpoint. 

We have a fun group of people that have been great to travel with, learn from and socialize with!  The interactions and leadership perspectives I have heard from my NC State colleagues are both impactful and long lasting. 

Getting to visit companies here in Prague has been eye opening given the cultural differences they have to manage through but also the global challenges that businesses are facing and the way in which the organizations here have adapted and led through them!  Great program and experience that I highly recommend!” -Alex Huff, MBA Student
“Studying abroad has been a goal of mine since undergrad. So thankful for this experience so far. The food, architecture, music and people have been amazing!”-Andrew DeMichele, MBA Student
Our study abroad students are in Prague this week for Leading People 1 and 2 with Professors Leigh Shamblin, EdD, MBA, ACC  and Bradley Kirkman.

17 students over the next few days will visit companies like @cisco and P-Lab, along with a full immersion into Czech culture.

We’ll be sharing the stories of program participants over the next week to highlight an unforgettable journey in the capital of the Czech Republic capital city.
“The best part about the study abroad program, aside from the beautiful scenery in Prague, has been getting to know and learn from and with my counterparts in the program. Having been an online only student in the program this was the perfect way to round out my last semester with NC State.” -Alex Shock, MBA Student
“The highlight of this study abroad program for me has been our visit to the charming town of Kutna Hora, Czech Republic. It feels like we are out of the big city and can really appreciate the natural beauty, rich history, and stunning churches. I am very thankful we got to make this excursion!” -Zach Sandler, MBA Student

“Traveling abroad like this changes your perspective to different people, cultures, and businesses. This week was transformational for me and I’ve got so much to take back home and apply. It was critical to see the innovation from local incubators like WERK1 and MUST and within large multination organizations like Siemens and Fujitsu.” -Brent Hui, MBA Student
“I’ve been impressed by the level of innovation being driven out of the city of Munich.  The German based companies are focused on solving complex global business problems, while leveraging new technologies, and optimizing a diverse talent pool.” -Casey Brannigan, MBA Student
“Cultural experiences like this help accelerate my learning and pushes me to be more innovative at home. This trip to Munich has far exceeded my expectations. I’ve been able to grow my network, learned a lot about innovation, make new friends, and of course, eat amazing food!” Jamison Taylor, MBA Student
“I’ve learned just as much from the culture as the companies. The trip has exceeded expectations, for sure. Munich feels like a small NYC; an innovative hub for Germany with new thoughts, process, and exciting culture attracting employees as a gateway to the country. There is a lot more here than what we have time for!” -Christa Langenburg, MMA Student
This trip to Munich has resulted in the most learning and fun of anything in the MBA program for me so far. We’ve got an awesome group of people on the trip and the companies and tour guides have been welcoming and engaged. It’s been an unforgettable experience! -Zach Sandler, MBA Student
