"This was a journey which certainly we enjoyed 100% of the time.
You can count how many mornings we woke up after the 7am, none! Not even Saturday or Sunday failed, the bus used to take us to places everyday at 8:00–8:30hs.
Including the time inside the bus we had important information, always with the guides! Returning here to Nextel, many asked about the trip and after 5 minutes of conversation they already realized that it was a journey of study and hard work. Instead of talking about tourism, I mentioned about the companies we went to, like Volvo, Voith Siemens, Embraco, Anthem, Embassy, City Hall, University, Vale do Rio Doce, silk factories, manufacturing, Embraer, wow! My boss, the CFO, asked me to make a brief presentation of the journey for the finance managers. I'd also mention the bond ties of friendship between the members of the class and the FIA team, which is very valuable. Congratulations for the work of strategy planning, diplomacy, patience and physical effort of all of you."

"Now that I'm back to the office, partially recovered from the time zone jet-lag, I am writing to formally thank you all for the trip to China. It was an excellent experience not only regarding the content but also the cultural experience and integration of the class. Clearly, initiatives like this always make room for improvement, but overall the record is much more than positive — it is unforgettable. Thank you very much indeed, I really think these international modules aggregate a lot to the MBA.
See you next class, on Friday."

"I would like to thank the opportunity, and mention how I loved the course, it will really add value culturally and professionally to my career. Without any doubt it was also very important to have the chance to meet people and exchange experiences. I would like to register my desire to attend the trip in September for the USA and also to ask you to please put me on the waiting list for Cambridge in April 2008, I have great interest in participating, and if I get accepted for this next group, I would really be very grateful because I know that this is a golden opportunity and I'm sure it would be very important for my career. I will also pass on positive messages about FIA Business School, for executives who I have contact with in the company I am working, and also to my colleagues from other multinational companies.
Thank you very much!"
