School of Business Survey for Alumni Travel

1. Survey on Alumni Travel - GFU School of Business

 
The GFU School of Business is looking at the possibility of conducting alumni travel beginning in the Summer of 2013. We have heard from a number of alumni that there is interest, and would like to gather more specific information about your level of interest and preferences.

Alumni travel would be open to GFU School of Business graduates, their spouses or guests, and as space is available, other alumni or supporters of the university. Trips and all financial arrangements would be handled through an outside agency. A School of Business faculty member will accompany the group, in addition to local guides.

Please let us know about your interest in alumni travel with the GFU School of Business.
1. Currently we are considering two destinations, the People's Republic of China or Ireland. Please indicate your interest in these as destinations for alumni travel.
2. If you participate in an alumni trip, how would you prefer to handle your air transportation from your home airport to the starting point and from the ending point home?
Note that group airfare may or may not be less expensive than fares available through travel agencies or web sites.
