International Field Trip
MBA Open Exchange
May 25-28, 2018 @ Sofia, Bulgaria
The International Field Trip (IFT) is part of the MBA Module – Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, and involves a visit to a country or region outside Cyprus. The objective of this international field-based learning is to familiarize participants with the destination’s business environment and the pedagogic process takes place primarily through visits to local companies, university campuses, international organizations and government institutions, management talks, networking events and cultural experience sessions with local executives.
Participants include MBAs, UCLan Cyprus alumni, associates and friends, all seeking to gain experience-based market insights and explore new development horizons.
Bulgaria has attracted in the past significant inward foreign direct investments, also of Cypriot origin. It has the most favourable tax regime in Europe. Located at the heart of the Balkans, it is a strategic logistics hub. Its work force is well educated, highly skilled and multilingual. The country currently runs the presidency of the Council of the EU. Due to its great variety of influences from ancient civilizations, including the Thracians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Slavs, Bulgaria has one of the richest folk heritages in the world.
