For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Andrew Ochs. I am a second-year student in the traditional MBA program at Benedictine College. I write to you from Maastricht, the Netherlands, where I am joined by three professors, twelve executive MBA students, and one fellow traditional MBA student. We are here for a week-long European management residency at Maastricht University’s School of Economics and Business. The primary focus of the residency is entrepreneurship, while we also learn about Dutch and European culture within the context of an international business school.
Over the course of this week, I will be using this blog share our experience with everyone back home. Along with chronicling our studies, I hope to introduce you to the students and faculty on the trip, acquaint you with the city of Maastricht and the university, and share some of our adventures outside the classroom.
A note of apology: I’m sorry that I haven’t gotten a post up until today. It seems like every time I’ve gone to make a post, another task distracted me or the spotty internet in the hotel went out. Thanks for bearing with me, and stay tuned!
