Brett Cooper Van Blaricum, Summer 2017 Participant
South Africa was such a different place to visit everything we did was extremely interesting. I loved going to the multiple cities and seeing how different everything felt from the U.S. The whole trip was an awesome experience, especially learning about the South African and African business culture as a whole.

Summer 2019 Participant
I believe that everything I learned during this program would be helpful to other KU Master of Accounting students. Not only do I have such a tight knit group of friends going forward that I will be able to work with in my classes and network with the rest of my career, but the things I have learned about other countries and about myself are irreplaceable and I truly hope others have the opportunity to do the same. I would recommend this program to anyone that asks me about it, and I will continue to spread the word and the good that it does in hopes that it stays around for a very long time. If you asked me to pick something to improve in this program for future participants, I would say that it’s impossible. And then, if you asked me again and said I really had to think of something, it would probably have to do with the extremely long or delayed flights, which are out of everyone’s control. In fact, this may have been the most shocking thing about the trip for me, there was truly nothing wrong with it. Yes, things didn’t always go as planned: we had to miss out on some stuff due to flight delays and some of the company visits weren’t always the MOST entertaining thing in the world, but I wouldn’t change a bit of it!

Summer 2019 Participant
The most rewarding part had to be the interaction with the students and faculty at Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth while we were there. I was able to learn so much through their experiences as students there and found I could relate to them in so many ways. I also valued our visit to a local township, which showed the massive wealth inequality within South Africa.
