2011 Europe Study Tour: It’s a wrap!

It has been a few days now since our group parted ways in Munich, Germany.  Our 2011 Europe Study Tour officially came to an end last Saturday May 14, 2011.  A few students continued on with their travels through Europe, some stayed in Munich to take in more sites, and the rest went home to resume their lives.  One thing is for sure, we are forever changed. 

This trip has been chock full of learning, bonding, and taking in the European culture.  We covered all kinds of unknown territory on this trip, including the topic of family business and entrepreneurship and meetings with executives and representatives from a number of European businesses and organizations.  Above all, this has been an experience of a lifetime because of the group itself.  Our group of 20 bonded quickly and managed to keep ourselves out of trouble (I am sure Peter is thankful for this!) while living the European way (walk walk walk walk walk).  We enjoyed the regional cuisine and bevies but also worked hard to fulfill our student responsibilities.  We accomplished a lot on our trip!

We’d like to thank Peter and Andrew, the Alberta School of Business and the various business leaders, hosts and lecturers for this opportunity to learn about European politics, banking, and family business and entrepreneurship.  This has truly been an enlightening experience for each and every one of us.

Finally, a huge thanks to our dedicated blog followers.  We hope you’ve been able to live vicariously through our blogs!

A picture speaks a thousand words.  So in closing, we present you with …. a million words! Here is a selection of some of our favourite highlights of our trip (in no special order).  Please feel free to add your reflections of our trip in the comments (we like comments)!  Until next trip…….enjoy!
