University of Wisconsin-Madison: Opportunity for Cuba Seminar

Cuba. The name conjures many images in the minds of Americans: tropical landscapes; a culture rich with vibrant music, delicious food, and exciting baseball; Havana’s colonial architecture; the Cuban Revolution; Fidel Castro; and tempestuous US-Cuban foreign relations.

Are you interested in learning more about Cuba? Professor Randy Dunham is leading a seminar/field study to Cuba during the spring 2015 semester. Both business and non-business students are eligible to apply for the program. The seminar will examine the island nation’s history, politics, society, economics, organization practices, and health care. The field study includes visits to Cuban cultural sites and museums, state-owned companies, entrepreneurial businesses, a multi-national company, a Cuban university, and a “biosphere” community, as well as meetings with executives and discussions with U.S. and Cuban officials.

Come learn more about this program at an information session this Wednesday, September 24, from 4:00-5:30 in 2170 Grainger Hall.

For additional information, view the Cuba Seminar/Field Study Flyer.

Applications for the seminar/field study are due by October 1, 2014. Instructions on how to apply are found on the flyer.
