Seattle Study Trip


’14 Sloan fellows @ PACCAR

Between the Winter and Spring quarters, the MSx cohort went on a Study Trip to Seattle. Timed to coincide with our Operations class, we visited two large industrial manufacturers – Boeing and Paccar – and Seattle’s e-commerce titan Amazon.

We also had time to socialize – which I think is the best reason to go on this trip. Sure, the TGIF events and other social gatherings throughout the year are a great way to keep the Sloanies tight, but having a trip away from the farm between academic quarters makes for a better social environment.

The trip is optional – but I strongly suggest going!
