Summer 2019 Participant
I found many aspects of this program to be rewarding. It was great being able to see how both local and international companies operate in South Africa compared to the United States. I also found that going to the township was rewarding. It was amazing to me how everyone had a positive attitude in the township when they have very few possessions and live within a couple of miles of the very wealthy. It was also great to interact with the children of the township and see how happy they were when we gave them school supplies.

Jason Shindler, Summer 2019 Participant
My favorite part of the program was the ability to truly experience the culture of South Africa beyond visiting only multinational companies. Our director did a great job of balancing the trip with cultural excursions like the District Six Museum and the Walmar Township and business trips to Volkswagen and Media24.

Nicholas Hay, Summer 2017 Participant
All of the cultural experiences. From the African drumming and braai, the rugby game, seeing townships, the safari, sundowners with NMMU students and faculty, Robben Island, and more. These were all new experiences for all of us, and it allowed us to be introduced to South African life and culture. Even though there are similarities, the differences between here and there opened my eyes to many new things.
