DBI CHINA 2019: 3 CREDITS, GREAT CONTENT, AND EVEN BETTER FRIENDS

As I dragged my suitcase, which had somehow lost all its wheels on its journey from New York, through Beijing International Airport, I began to wonder what exactly had I signed up for. Being a “wing-it” type of gal, my preparation for coming to a country that had limited English and serious internet-browsing restrictions involved printing some Stern emails and a photo of the hotel.

DBi Istanbul began with cocktails at Bogacizi University and ended on a boat cruise on the Bosphorus. In the ten days in between our group of fifteen Stern MBAs tapped into the rhythm of a city that is at once historic and modern, from the magnificence of the Blue Mosque to late nights in the clubs of the Bosphorus.

Though always the historical gateway between Europe and Asia, Turkey now plays a growing role in the international economy and a critical role in the tumultuous politics of North Africa and the Middle East. Turkey’s reemergence on the global stage set the backdrop for engaging coursework, coursework that focused on the unique aspects of the domestic market, the performance of the national economy, and the Turkish impact on regional and international markets.…
