During Appalachian State University's spring break, undergraduates from the Walker College of Business visited the Yucatán peninsula and the University of Quintana Roo as part of their Business, Society and Sustainability course. The delegation also included MBA students, who were part of an international seminar on Mexico.
The group recently shared photos from their travels, which feature the region's beaches and archaeological sites dating from the era of Mayan ascendancy.
The students observed the impacts of economic development on the local community, in particular through the tourism industry, and witnessed the diversity of languages, geographies and cultures that make up the country of Mexico.
