    We separated into two groups yet again to deliver workshops and facilitate the drafting of business plans. Anastasiya and Barbara headed to the coastal province of Sechura while Malorie and Ted ventured further out to the mountainous province of Ayabaca. The city of Ayabaca is at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters. To get there we spent two hours on paved roads, breezing through customs checkpoints because of the regional government insignia on our pickup truck. The checkpoints are set up to prevent oil from being illegally brought in from Ecuador to be sold at a discount in Peru.

    The MBA program at Thunderbird emphasizes the importance of both hard and soft skills, particularly with respect to working in a global environment in cross cultural and cross functional teams. Throughout our academic experience, the majority of our work was in groups, meaning that as a TEM Lab team, we were well versed in team dynamics before coming to Peru.
