Tiffin, Ohio — Two doctoral students from Tiffin University recently completed a one-week cultural trip to Romania as part of their coursework in the Ph.D. program in global leadership and change.

The October trip included a tour of Bucharest, the Village Museum, and an excursion to the Transylvania region of Romania. The students, Anita Gregory and Erin Marchant, were also hosted by and conducted discussions with managers at Ziarul Financiar, Romania’s largest business publication, and Ursus brewery, according to a press release from the university.

According to Dr. Ken Rauch, Director for the Ph.D. program in global leadership and change, global travel opportunities are among the most instructive elements of the program. “International travel with our Ph.D. faculty allows students to better understand society, the world and our place in it, and that could help Tiffin University Ph.D. graduates make the critical decisions that will shape our future,” Rauch said in the release.

During their stay, Gregory and Marchant also worked with the Tiffin University Bucharest campus MBA students on one of their case studies. Gregory said in the release, “It was an amazing opportunity for us to learn about the culture and history of Romania, as well as discuss the current issues that businesses are facing with globalization. I’m very grateful that I was able to take advantage of this opportunity.”

The trip was organized by Andreea Vulpe, owner of Classy Romania in Bucharest, who is a graduate of the Tiffin University MBA Bucharest program.
