    s strong roots that much more impact Lastly before the day was over we journeyed to the nearby city and country of Monaco the second smallest country in the world to explore its brilliance its heights of luxury and its gorgeous ports It was becoming very easy to forget which country we were in at the pace we were crossing national boundaries A very full day in all regards and as nice a way to ease us back into the fast pace of classes final exams and presentations Personal history EDHEC students in Monaco Back in classes the next day we focused on EU Consumer Policy but saying that would leave out the depth of emotion that often found its way into the classroom Professor Dolait spoke of Europe and its people with his own family s history and personal experiences playing a strong role To understand the nature of these policies structures and behaviors is to learn of all that was lost and see the strong need to rebuild anew in a form not easily straying from peace From these foundations we spoke of the successes and failures people and companies have had in predicting the European market and adapting their products and services to it Professor Dolait s prior roles at the Texas Instruments brought this better in focus as he brought in the French version of the Speak and Spell toy which his team was charged with adapting the U S version for various European markets This and many other examples during the course of the program brought real world meaning to our lessons and for me seeing a working Speak and Spell was a special treat Final Push Professor Dolait with the Speak and Spell The build up to the final presentations and exams weighed heavy in our last few days of the program We found ourselves once again beginning to gather in late night study groups around the hotel and lurk near the early morning breakfast tables for the first of the day s sustenance to be served It was safer to walk to campus than potentially fall asleep on the bus and miss the stop Without posting some highly entertaining photos of what our teams looked like during this period needless to say they were not our most photogenic moments But the hard work did pay off and great salvos of thoughtful presentation were delivered on our last day in Professor Lumbers class I myself learned a great deal about the pharmaceutical industry in Europe which my team and I focused on and we stood tall and proud in our accomplishments On the same day we also took our final exams before meeting up with Ms Butterweck and Professor Dolait for a farewell cocktail That was a hard event to attend as leading up to it members of our newly acquired family begin to leave to grab flights back home We had impromptu hallway singing group photos and a lot of tearful hugs in
