Dr. Patrick Lach: International Experiences

Dr. Patrick Lach

Assistant Professor of Finance

Dr. Lach was quick to take notice of the Study Abroad programs offered by EIU's School of Business.  Seeing the invaluable experiences that the programs offer to students who participate, Dr. Lach decided to act as one of the faculty leaders on the trip to Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Of his first trip, Dr. Lach had this to say, "In Summer 2011, I had the unique privilege of co-leading the Business Study Abroad in Europe program with Dr. David Boggs. It was an incredible experience for the students who participated, as they each had the chance to learn firsthand about the challenges businesses face when they enter a foreign market.  Students were able to experience the cultural differences present in the global business environment that they will enter upon graduation.  Additionally, I will bring my experiences from the study abroad trip into the classes I teach here at EIU, so that all of the students in the School of Business are able to see beyond the walls of the classroom into the international world of business."
