TravelMBA, a leading supplier of travel and logistics services supporting MBA and Executive MBA global curricula was founded 10 years ago. It serves more than a dozen universities primarily from top-30 MBA and EMBA programs. Nearly half of TravelMBA’s current client schools are also clients of Accent Travel Group.
Together, Accent and TravelMBA form the University Division of WorldStrides, the premier travel organization serving the needs of short-term global study programs for colleges and universities. The company’s clients are among the top-ranked programs in the world; with eight of BusinessWeek’s top 10 schools and over 70 percent of the top 30 ranked programs. Committed to protecting the valuable reputations of the universities served, WorldStrides’ University Division is the sole travel company in this niche market registered to serve MBA and EMBA students from all 50 states.
Says TravelMBA founder Rick Rosenfeld, “We are excited to join the country’s oldest and most trusted student travel organization. In this merger we see incredible synergies between Accent and TravelMBA which will ultimately better serve our clients and our employees.”
Adds Earl Grossman, Senior Vice President and Partner at Accent, “I’ve known Rick for several years and am glad that our teams will be able to work together as we continue to serve the needs of universities expanding their global curricula.”
