Flying to Abu Dhabi

It is actually Saturday morning although morning is supposed to follow a night in which one has slept. I have never been able to sleep on planes, but long trips are great for catching up on journal reading and manuscript reviews. Several of us from the School are flying to Abu Dhabi to present a proposal to develop an environmental plan for the country. As Professor Bill Sollecito and I flew through London, I could not help but think about the faculty and students who travel globally with some frequency. My admiration for them grows with my own global travel.

I have been reading a lot about Abu Dhabi, a country which is one of the oldest civilizations but whose first road was only built in the last third of the 20th century. I wonder what it will feel like and be like to be there.

Warmly,
Barbara

    I know several top business schools have begun to include international travel as part of their curriculum – accessible to every admitted student. I think it would be a phenomenal achievement for our school to be able to say the same. Every student gets to travel internationally. What is education in our world today without international travel?
