IBUS 6403 in Ghana was fortunate enough to be hosted by , where we were able to hear Kim Addison of and Selassie Atadika of speak about their experiences as small business owners in the chocolate industry. We rounded out the day with an INCREDIBLE dinner provided by Crescendo, created by the amazing chefs Rita and Rafiatu with chocolate featured in every course!


Michael at Tetteh Quarshie’s original cocoa farm, showing us how Ghanaian cocoa farmers process cocoa pods into the nibs that are then sent to be turned into chocolate bars. Tetteh Quarshie was the first to bring cocoa to Ghana, smuggling the beans here from Equatorial Guinea. Two of his original trees, planted in 1879 still grow and produce cocoa at this farm!


Akwaaba from Elise traveling with IBUS 6403: Ghana Grows! We spent our third official morning here at the Aburi Botanical Garden, and Tetteh Quarshie’s cocoa farm—the first in Ghana!


A huge thank you to for the "sweet" lesson on the agriculture industry in Argentina!

Finland's Northern Lights are absolutely a reason to study abroad at Aalto University School of Business🌌 Here are some semester exchange tips from Andrea Tryggestad who studied abroad in Helsinki last year!

• Pick housing with a roommate when possible. It's a built-in feiend, at least for a little while, who will go with you to things and explore with you.
• Go to the events put on for the exchange students.
• Embrace the culture. If there is a class about your exchange country, take it!
• Travel as much as you can and interact with the people you meet.
