A Free Evening in Barcelona

           The spouses of the top executives participating in an Advanced Management Program (AMP) offered by the University of Asia and the Pacific in tandem with some leading professors of the IESE Business School in Barcelona had the best of both worlds:  to be in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and not to attend the classes that their respective spouses had to endure for five straight days, tackling some four to five business cases a day.  This was the last module in the four-module AMP that brought them from Manila to Jakarta to Cebu and finally to Barcelona.  Bringing their respective spouses to Barcelona with them was a fringe benefit of the AMP.  The spouses and other relatives who traveled to Barcelona were more than happy to be beneficiaries of this unique feature of an executive education program.
