RAP Global Leadership Field Trip

The Regents’ Ambassador Program learning community Global Leadership Field Trip supports the professional and personal development of 25-35 first-generation business scholars through a ten-day international experience in a unique global business environment.  The current program takes place in Panama City, Panama while previous iterations have taken place in Paris, France. London, UK, Ghana, South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, and Dubai.

Through generous contribution, students are able to travel cost-free and experience a business context distinct from that of North America. In Panama, students will participate in cultural visits as well as company engagement with business small and large. The highlight of this trip is the Panama Canal which will showcase its importance to global business. In Paris and Versailles, students took part in cultural, historical, and entrepreneurial learning experiences, including touring the Palace of Versailles and observing local entrepreneurs in vibrant market environments.  In London, the scholars experienced large and small business environments and will connect with Aggies working abroad in the UK.  Students will compare and contrast business, cultural, and political observations in both countries with those of the U.S. and others previously experienced.
