After an incredible month in Mexico our time is coming to an end. Just this morning we gave our final presentations, were awarded with certificates and started to say adios to some of the team.
We have experienced so much in so little time – the hustle and bustle of Mexico City, campus life in Queretaro, hiking monoliths in Bernal, carnivals in Leon, the bright streets of Guanajuato and modern industrialisation in Monterrey. This has undoubtedly been an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
Our last week in Monterrey has included two great company visits – one to Bimbo and one to Neoris.
Bimbo is the largest bakery in the world and we had the chance to go behind the scenes and take a factory tour – seeing all their incredible automation and rows upon rows of chocolate biscuits being prepared was a great sight!
Neoris is a digital consultancy firm working with some of the biggest multinationals in the world to help improve their processes. We had a seminar learning about the up and coming tech sector in Mexico and the importance of R&D to sustain a competitive edge.
Beyond that, we also had time at the ‘innovaction’ labs on campus where we were able to see the university’s AI, 3D printing, blockchain and VR technology that is available for all students to use!
This week’s academics have put focus on understanding the realities of establishing a business in Mexico and the part emerging markets like Mexico can play in creating a better world. Our professor Anil has been incredible to us all throughout the course and I’m so thankful for the time and effort he has put into this program and this group. He takes a hands-on approach to learning, strives to make the classes interactive and involving, and is all too welcoming with any questions we have, no matter how big or small. I will be returning not only with a greater understanding of culture and business in Mexico but also with a revived passion for learning and growth.
A huge thank you again to 360 International and the PMSLA for making this possible. Until next time,
