Why should you join my trek? Architecture, Flamenco, Nightlife, Soccer (Hala Madrid!), best (and most good looking) trek leaders make Spain a no-brainer for me. Also, it’s alright if you don’t speak Spanish because no hablo Espanol.

Why should you join my trek?
By day, join a great crew of MBA2’s that bring diverse backgrounds and experiences to the table as we explore the amazing culture that Spain has to offer. By night, carb up on some paella and get ready to hit some of the world’s finest night clubs. My Ross Bus exec board title is “VP of Vibes” for a reason.

Why should you join my trek? Immerse yourself in rich history, savor the flavors of Spanish cuisine, and experience some of the best nightlife in the world. Plus, join a great group of MBA2 leaders that bring a wide variety of travel and personal experiences. Maybe even try to convince the VP of Vibes (Karim) and I why you should be considered for BUS Management next year?!
