This was the third year that the group came to campus to present and meet with students. Dr. Krause said, “I know that the students enjoyed hearing from this group. Discussions about geo-politics and macro-economics are interesting – especially when it involves emerging markets – and there certainly has been a lot to talk about given Brexit, the Trump election and the Italian referendum. The students were very impressed with the depth of knowledge that Will and Rocio possessed. It again was great having them back on campus.”
