Cassiopie Nelson, Winter Break 2017 Participant
There wasn't one specific thing that stood heads and shoulders above the rest; rather it was the complete package and the variety of all the activities and experiences that made this trip memorable. The primary objective of the trip to Panama was to see and to better understand logistics in real time however; there were many parts of the trip that allowed us to see and understand the cultural significance of Panama and its impact to global trade.

Winter Break 2014 Participant
I really enjoyed visiting the various businesses and gaining first hand knowledge in different industries associated with supply chain management. The indigenous village in the middle of the rainforest was also very cool to visit.

Summer 2013 Participant
The best parts of this program was meeting with businesses that have located to Panama to take advantage of its close proximity to the Panama Canal and bonding with others students that went on the trip.
