Roosevelt University Peru MBA Study Trip
Welcome to the site for the international study program in South America. Join your colleagues on a multi-day visit to one of the most exciting regions in the world and learn about the culture and business environment of its rapidly developing economies.
South America's third largest country by surface area, Peru has huge natural resources and its strategic position on the Pacific coast enables direct access to sea to and from Asian markets. Peru has been one of the beneficiaries of increased Asian-South American trade. Prudent macroeconomic and free market policies have gone hand in hand to stimulate exports and attract foreign investment.
Peru's rich and varied heritage traces back to the pre-Columbian era, including one of the most important cultures of Mesoamerica: the Incas, whose legacy is still palpable in the old capital of Cusco.
