I believe study tours enrich the experience of the MBA. Students are given the opportunity to gain invaluable learning experiences outside the classroom. I was really happy with my decision to join the study tour of India in my second year. I learned so much about the country. This would have been impossible without encountering it myself. Of course, another bonus was all the fun I had with classmates while on tour.
