Millennials Incorporated: Our Student Cohort

      

At the AACSB Associate Deans Conference in Houston, Texas, Andrea Hershatter, Senior Associate Dean at the Goizueta Business School, Emory University gave a wonderful presentation about the Millennial Generation.

In fact, Mexico is a perfect place combining cheap costs and outstanding landscape.
