Students in Stetson University’s Executive MBA Cohort 9 arrived safely in Istanbul, Turkey, at 10:45 AM local time today to sunny and beautiful weather.
“As we traveled to the Titanic Hotel, we had exceptional views of the Bosphorus,” said Wendy Lowe, Executive MBA program coordinator.
The group spent the afternoon exploring the area near their hotel called Taksim Square, or Taksim Meydanı in Turkish. This area, in the European part of Istanbul, is a major shopping, tourist and leisure district famed for its restaurants, shops and hotels. It is considered the heart of modern Istanbul, with the central station of the Istanbul Metro network.
“Tomorrow, we explore other popular cultural sites of the city,” said Lowe.
