EMBA Alumni Trip to Lisbon, Portugal

Saturday, May 26 – Thursday, May 31, 2018

Join your fellow EMBA alumni in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, this May! Known as the City of Seven Hills, Lisbon is the oldest city in Western Europe with a palpable cultural heritage that you will feel as you wander its cafe-lined cobblestone streets. However, Lisbon is also a major economic power in Europe, with a huge financial presence, a strategically-located port, and a growing number of startups choosing to call this city home.

Our 2018 trip to Lisbon is unique in that we will have the opportunity to visit 4 Lisbon companies as well as participate in a case study, in addition to a wide variety of cultural events and excursions. Our alumni committee worked with ISP (International Study Programs) to plan an outstanding trip!

DEADLINE TO REGISTER: February 9, 2018
