Truly, the best of class: 83 are inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma.
With the world frequently using adjectives that “hedge” and accolades that encompass everyone, recognizing absolute excellence is particularly important. In spring 2012, 83 students from the College of Business Administration at Florida International University (FIU) were inducted into the international honor society, Beta Gamma Sigma. “Only the top ten percent of undergraduate business students and […]
Honor students have “eye-opening” experience at Memphis leadership forum.

IMBA Study Abroad: Last week in China!
This is our last week in China! We went back to the Jimo market to do some last-minute souvenir shopping. There was a man at the exit who sold watches and also happened to carve seals. I picked a beautiful white seal, wrote down my Chinese name, and watched as he drew it on, carved, […]
IMBA Study Abroad: Fifth and sixth weeks in China!
This week we had a very special Taiji class: the professor taught us a sequence of movements with a sword! He brought his own custom-made sword; it was beautiful and pretty heavy. Curiously, people walked by very close to us even though we were flinging a sword around and there was more than enough space […]
IMBA Study Abroad: Fourth week in China!

Our haircuts turned out great, although I must warn you that the blow-drying is definitely sub-par, just in […]

IMBA Study Abroad: Second week in China!
This week we are becoming more accustomed to the Qingdao way.

IMBA Study Abroad: First week in China!
We arrived in Qingdao after a three-hour flight from Hong Kong on a cool airline called Dragonair. Their seats are upholstered in blue leopard skin, which I found hilarious, and the service is phenomenal. As soon as we landed we had a taste of the swine flu craze in China…two men, dressed entirely in white […]
