Students at Marbella University take part in a variety of industrial visits focused around ‘Sustainability in Business’ where they gain priceless access to the real business world.
As part of the 2013-2014 academic year, MU students visited Agrojardin, one of the most respected garden centers on the Costa del Sol; Juanar, a well known nature reserve; Cortijo El Robledal, a stud farm; and Quesos Sierra Crestellina, a family run cheese factory in Manilva.
Students had the privilege of direct access to business owners and managers that have been at the forefront of not only successful businesses, but the real business life, often over the course of decades.
Students who visited a business this academic year were clearly impressed: “Having the opportunity to visit real businesses, ask questions and see how business owners manage their businesses is priceless” said one of the first year students after a visit, “the variety of businesses we visited is definitely a huge motivation and inspiration” added another.
Previous industrial visits, included Santa Verde, an Aloe Vera farm in Estepona; CEPSA, an oil refinery in San Roque, Cadiz; the Marbella Golf Club, a prestigious golf course in Marbella; and the Kempinski Hotel, one of the leading 5-star Luxury Hotels on the Costa del Sol.
