Students in Millikin University's Tabor School of Business recently worked with the government of Ecuador to develop a U.S. market entry strategy for Ecuadorian handicrafts. The project was part of Millikin's International Business Consulting course led by Dr. J. Mark Munoz, professor of international management at Millikin. The course provides an opportunity for students to take part in real life projects for companies, and sometimes governments, in various parts of the world.
"Good market research takes teamwork," said Jacob Kissaw, who earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Millikin University on May 20. Kissaw, from Monticello, Ill., was one of 21 students in Millikin's most recent Executive MBA cohort.
As part of its annual celebration of International and Hispanic Heritage Month, Millikin University International Fellowship students shared their recent study abroad experiences during an event on Sept. 22 in Lower Richards Treat University Center.
