What a great experience! Lorenzo and Gerrard, our GAN hosts, took myself and ten other LSU Master of Science in Accounting students on an unforgettable cultural excursion. We had the opportunity to see the beautiful landscape of Nicaragua from the serene Pacific coast to the mountainous coffee farms of Matagalpa. Lorenzo arranged for us to meet with several Nicaraguan businesses executives of various industries. Their presentations along with tours of the farms and facilities allowed me gain a real understanding of how these industries operate. This experience simply cannot be gained by reading a textbook or sitting in a classroom back home. From the time we were picked up from the airport to the time we were dropped off we were in good hands with the GAN team. They treated us like family and were always there to answer questions or help in any way possible. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to go on this trip. I highly recommend Go Abroad Nicaragua to both students and faculty who are interested in visiting Nicaragua.
