To quote Aziz Ansari, “Treat Yo Self”. You’ve aced the GMAT and passed the infamous Ross group interview; time to celebrate your accomplishments and enjoy yourself before becoming a student again. We’ll be having a once (unless you lead a trip next year)-in-a-lifetime experience through Europe to enjoy the food, culture, and nightlife. Our learn hard, party hard schedule starts in Berlin, takes the party to Prague, and ends in Munich. We’ll pick up some new skills (cooking classes), have unique experiences (climbing the roof of the Olympic Stadium/Kayaking through Berlin), eat great food, and treat ourselves (Karlovy Vary spa retreat). Your MBA2 guides will lead the way with the perfect soundtrack and newly acquired summer consulting, marketing, and tech skills. We’ll all bond by taking in historic sites, visiting Europe’s biggest party destinations, and getting pictures that all your friends will be jealous of. You’ve made great choices so far in life, continue the streak with this trek!
