A packed day 3 in the D.R. included a visit to the Oakland @athletics Dominican Academy in La Victoria. After a lengthy tour and Q&A with Kelvin Todd, students and several A's players visited a nearby orphanage/daycare and assisted with lunchtime for the kids. On the ride home, the group took the new public transit teleférico 🚡 to the hotel for a recap class session a (very heavy) dinner of mofongo.
Day 2 in the D.R.: a visit to MLB Santo Domingo HQ, a tour of Estadio Quisqueya thanks to our new friends with @tigresdellicey and a research visit to Centro Olímpico Juan Pablo Duarte for some interviews and a #lasreinasdelcaribe practice. 🏐👑🇩🇴
Our first day of the #SMBA20 study abroad in the Dominican Republic coincided with #internationalyouthday 2019. Students spent the morning with at-risk youths from #AlertaJoven and @entrena_dr facilitators to discuss ways in which young people can help their communities. After, we visited the Padres Dominican Academy and spent time practicing English with some 🇩🇴🇻🇪🇲🇽 prospects. Students also took on local women in a 🥎 scrimmage, a first in our ten years of visiting D.R. We ended the day with a class discussion recapping research paper topics. Whew.
Here we GO! We are all packed and ready for our trip to the Dominican Republic. #SMBA20
Another successful Leadership Reaction Course with guest lecturer Steve Gera (SMBA '07) and the three USMC Lieutenant Colonels assisting as instructors for the day. It's always one of the highlights of the Sports MBA program when students have the opportunity to learn from these outstanding leaders.
Walking out into the city after the @raptors won in Golden State was straight out of a movie. Check out these great photos sent to us by SMBA alumnus @3bnachural (#SMBA10). Congrats to Eric and his team at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment! We caught up with Nachman to ask him about his #NBAFinals experience. Read more ➡️ bit.ly/EricNachman
