It was a lively week in the headquarters of Ford Motor Company, s.r.o. as a group of some twenty American students paid a visit to Ford as part of their European study trip. The students were from University of Buffalo’s School of Management.
The MBA students came to Czech Republic to learn about our business environment and to experience the specifics of the Czech market first hand. “The aim of this two-week long study trip is to show our students the competency, creativity and flexibility present in the local offices of American and global businesses,” said V. Hrabcuk from International Study Program, a company that organized the group’s stay in the Czech Republic.
No wonder the Ford Motor Company, one of the well-established footholds of American and global economy, was among the first companies the students would visit.
“I believe the hours spent with the American students have been beneficial to both parties,” said Jan Laube, Managing Director, Ford Czech Republic. “The intricacies of the Czech market were, of course, something completely new to them but they started to understand quickly and even came with some new and original insights we intend to utilize in the future. I hope it wasn’t the last time we could welcome such a visit at the Czech Ford – and I am looking forward to the next one!”
According to Wall Street Journal, the University of Buffalo’s School of Management has been ranked as one of the world’s best business schools for several consecutive years. Its graduates are sure to be among the most sought-after hires in the leading global companies.
