Cap off your summer before starting B-School by dancing on tables at Mykonos’ hottest beach clubs, setting sail on luxurious booze cruises through the Aegan Sea, exploring picturesque wineries in Crete, and relaxing watching the sunsets over the Greek Isles… all while avoiding thoughts of starting accounting.

This trip will kick off your B-School journey with plenty of memories and pictures to instantly make your friends jealous that they’re still working at Deloitte. Experience all of this with the best (rowdiest) group of MBA2 leaders that you could ever imagine who have promised to avoid all school talk and provide plenty of entertainment.

During this trip we will explore the Greek Islands of Mykonos and Crete, providing the perfect mix of Summer Beach Blowouts and the Greek Isles’ amazing culture and cuisine.

So… if you want to find your Kostas to your Lena (or your own Greek God / Goddess) and roll up to the first Game Day (#TheBus) looking bronzed and beautiful, join us on this once in a lifetime trip. If not, maybe see if Kellogg is still accepting applications.
