Summer 2018, Global Consulting Lab (GCL)
Ecuador, Siemens

The Young Consultants at Thunderbird (YC@T) are fully invested in the process of providing the best work possible for not only our client Siemens, here in Ecuador, but also for our school Thunderbird back home. While the work with Siemens has been both challenging and rewarding, we as a group of GCL students, individuals, and Thunderbirds have had the chance to explore the great culture down here in Quito, Ecuador. We have captured the culture, great views, and food along the way during our three-week adventure. Here are a few highlights:
