Students Learn Business and Diplomacy While In Egypt
Thirty students traveled to Egypt with Wagdy
Abdallah, Ph.D., professor of accounting, as part of the Doing Business
in Egypt course during the 2008-09 winter break. Students had an
opportunity to discover and learn accounting, finance, marketing and
diplomacy in a global business environment by making the trip. The
group consisted of two classes: BINT 6917 for graduate students and
BINT 4917 for undergraduate students.
They visited Marriott Hotel in Cairo, Mansour & Co.,
PricewaterhouseCoopers in Maadi (one of the four big global accounting
firms), Citibank of Egypt and the Egyptian Stock Market.
The trip wasn't all work and no play. While there, students had an
opportunity to sightsee in Cairo, Sharm El-Sheikh, Luxur, Aswan, and
Alexandria. Specifically, they visited the Museum and the Pyramids in
Cairo, went for different tours in Aswan and enjoyed a Nile cruise from
Aswan to Luxor for four days. Several students said it was one of the
best places to visit because of the amazing historical places.
