LSU EMBAs Culminate Experience with Capstone Trip to Europe

October 18, 2019

The LSU Executive MBA class within the Flores MBA program at the E. J. Ourso College of Business is wrapping up the 17-month educational experience with a capstone trip framed around the geopolitical dynamics of Brexit, giving the students an excellent opportunity to connect and engage business leaders and politicians in London and Dublin to discuss the Brexit framework and the challenges and consequences of leaving the European Union.

While in Europe, the class will assess and understand macro- and microeconomic activities around real-world events, examine the consequences of leaving the EU on capital markets and institutions and analyze the human capital dynamics around operations and strategic decisions.

The London portion of the trip includes meeting with senior leadership at KPMG for a financial perspective followed by meeting with the British-American British Council for a government and political vantage point. The class is also participating in a live case study with Rootlabs and Harvest London to assess environmental activities, agriculture and urban farming in London. Finally, the EMBA candidates have an incredible opportunity to meet with the Australian ambassador to the UK to get a broader perspective on Brexit and how it affects relationships throughout the world

The Dublin leg includes a session with senior leadership at Ernst & Young and Oracle Ireland, focusing on the people dynamics of Brexit, including the flight to Ireland, as well as the operational aspects.
