Salford MBA International Trip to Brazil

In May of this year, the Salford MBA students were given the opportunity to take part in an MBA International Trip. The choices provided were Almeria in Spain, Hong Kong or Brazil. The latter destination was most appealing to me, not just because of the impending World Cup, but because as an emerging market there are great business opportunities.

With that said, I eagerly submitted my choice and hoped for the best!

Thankfully, I was successful and on Sunday 11th May at 6:05am, in the early hours of the morning, my MBA cohort eagerly boarded a plane at Manchester Airport and left for Brazil.

After many hours in the air, we finally touched down in Sao Paulo at 17:10pm. Excited, we all disembarked the plane before quickly finding ourselves stuck in a two hour queue at immigration (Painful is the only word to describe it!). However, this was not enough to dampen our spirits and once out of the airport, we climbed aboard our coach and set sail for the hotel.

So, the big question is, what did we get up to whilst on our visit?
