My experience taking the practicum class in Bangkok and business environment of Asia class in Hong Kong was a fantastic experience. The practicum consisted of doing market research about introducing a sustainable power generation solution in Africa. The class gave us an excellent overview of how different it was doing business in Asia, and I have to admit that this trip was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my whole life. Getting first hand knowledge of different business cultures, doing a project and taking a class has surely helped me to increase my global mindset in a positive way.
