Costa Rica Seminar: Business and the Environment

INCAE.jpg

This January I'll be going on a two-week seminar through the Carlson School, to Alajuela, Costa Rica. There, we U of M students will be in classes and field trips with students at the Instituto Centroamericano de Administracion de Empresas (INCAE). The focus of the seminar will be on green, sustainable business - how businesses can maintain and even increase profit by taking care of the environment.

It should be very exciting and challenging! I've got my passport in hand and I'm trying to read applicable materials in my spare time. (I obtained an English-Spanish Field Glossary of sustainable development terms.)

You can find a video about the program here. I'll have plenty of my own pictures to post when I get back!
