Trek Description:

Join us for the 11th annual installment of the most thrilling global adventure yet—Mystery Trek: “Where in the World are the Rossers?” This year, our daring escapade is designed to challenge and excite tomorrow’s business leaders as they embark on this international adventure of a lifetime. This experience will be fueled by amazing food, beautiful sights, and unforgettable encounters. If there’s a better way to start your MBA experience, we haven’t found it… because it would already be part of this trip. This promises to be a life experience you won’t ever forget (except for a few fuzzy nights).

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a curious newcomer, this trek guarantees a blend of fun, adventure, and all the booze your heart desires. But what do I pack on a super-secret mission? Fear not! You’ll be provided a full packing list before we embark. Also, note that this year’s Mystery Trek will not require any additional visa requirements—both domestic and international students are encouraged and welcome to join!

Gear up, gather your allies, and get ready to answer the burning question: Where in the World are the RThe mission, should you choose to accept it: to trace the enigmatic trail left by Stephen M. Sandiego and forge friendships that will last a lifetime (or at least until your next job search). We feel like we shouldn’t have to sell mystery to you all, because this is the only MTrek that self-selects people who love adventure, clubbing, and the unknown. The infamous “Mystery Trek” is the ONLY MTrek where trekkers show up at the airport not knowing where they are going, with destinations revealed as the trip progresses.
