Thanks for checking out our Business on the Frontlines (BOTFL) 2013 Blog website. This is our first post, and although we don’t head out to our individual countries for a few more weeks, definitely check back in often for updates on what we’re doing and where we’re at. There’s a few ways to stay in touch with us throughout the semester (we’re really embracing the whole social media trends), and we’d encourage you to check them out and follow/friend us:
We’re now in our fourth week of BOTFL classes and we have started deep dives into our individual country projects and our classroom hours have centered around in-depth discussions on business, development, and service. We have 4 teams comprised of Notre Dame MBA, Peace Study, and Law students who partner with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) for the projects. This year our teams will be traveling to Sierra Leone, the Philippines, Rwanda, and Nicaragua. We’re very excited to be part of Business on the Frontlines and can’t wait to share more with you! Check back next week to learn more about the team members and the country projects.
