See what business schools across the United States are saying about Southbridge Access.

“Southbridge Access has consistently delivered outstanding results for the University of Tennessee across a range of programs including our Executive MBA, Professional MBA, Aerospace & Defense MBA, and traditional full-time MBA programs for almost 10 years. We have had multiple groups travel with Southbridge Access to Argentina, Brazil, and Chile.

I have worked directly with Southbridge Access on our Executive MBA residency periods in South America for the past three years and truly have nothing but praise regarding the quality and reliability of the team. Southbridge Access listens intently to what we desire for our students in a particular educational experience and then uses their deep experience and incredible network to deliver. Finally, everything is done with the highest degree of professionalism and responsiveness which make it enjoyable for all involved.

Finding a provider that possesses the contacts to facilitate discussions with senior business leaders (Country Managers, COOs, Senior Gov’t Officials) and one that is able to flawlessly arrange program logistics is very rare in my experience. Higher education groups who are traveling within Latin America are making a serious misstep if they do not first learn about the capabilities of Southbridge Access.”

Director of the Global Supply Chain Institute
University of Tennessee

“Southbridge Access is so superior that we would not think of using any other tour provider in Latin America. Our itinerary content is always customized to our requirements and needs educationally and to expose students to local culture; excellent government and business speakers are provided; site visits are outstanding and focused on industries we request if at all possible; hotels are clean, attractive, and in the best and safest areas of town for shopping and restaurants.”

“I have to tell you about the amazing team you have. Since Sunday, we have added several plenary sessions and made many, many changes to our schedule. Silvina, Vanesa, Adriana, Monica and Alex (behind the scenes) have been nothing short of amazing. Not only can they make miracles happen, almost more importantly, they do it with a smile and the most pleasant attitude. I know from experience that this isn’t easy. It takes intelligence, patience and kindness and your team has all of that! They are a joy to work and travel with.”

“My first experience to Argentina and Chile was nothing short of spectacular. The depth and breadth of our visits gave all of us, in a short amount of time, great perspective on the beautiful countries we were visiting. Additionally, the logistics couldn’t have been more well thought-out. It takes a great deal of effort to make a trip for 36 students and administrators run that smoothly.”

“Southbridge Access does an excellent job in partnering with a faculty person and program person to successfully achieve the goals in a country/region "global learning opportunity" class. From negotiating prices for hotels, meals, etc, to setting up logistics, and organizing company visits — it is a true turnkey operation, taking into account the needs of the faculty person, program person, and the students involved. This requires lots of planning, cost control, safety, language capabilities, and ‘on the ground’ execution of the plan. I have utilized Southbridge Access while I was at the University of Iowa (MBA), and now at the University of South Carolina (undergraduate) for trips to Chile and Argentina.”

“Thanks so much for orchestrating such a wonderful program. We (and the students) were very impressed not only with the seamless logistics, but also the quality of the business visits. Truly, it was great.”

“Our MBA program had a fantastic experience with Southbridge Access for our course trip to Brazil. Our guide had a deep knowledgeable of the culture and the cities we visited, and every detail of our trip was handled superbly. Southbridge Access ensured that each detail of our trip was well prepared from the hotel reservations, to the security arrangements, to our company visits. I recommend partnering with them for any trips to South America.”

“I just wanted to let you know that our trip is running very well. Our Program Manager (as you know) is excellent. She has continued to go above and beyond for our group and we are very grateful.

A big thanks to her and the rest of the Southbridge team for a great study tour.”

“Southbridge makes the process of planning international trips for student groups easy, efficient, and educational. The staff is friendly, accommodating, well organized, and incredibly helpful both in the planning process ahead of time and onsite in the country you are visiting. I have been pleased with using Southbridge to assist in getting top-notch international corporate visits and in planning exciting cultural excursions for my student group. I am appreciative to the Southbridge team for making a smooth and seamless international travel experience for my students at the University of Oklahoma and am planning to use their services for future trips.”

“I wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for a fantastic visit to Santiago! The students have been having a fantastic time in this great city. The hotel was wonderful for our group. We appreciate all the organization for the guides, buses and restaurants, and our host has been great!

I look forward to working with Southbridge again in the future.”

“Our entire itinerary and the tour was a class act — top to bottom. Southbridge Access has a vast, relevant, and detailed first-hand knowledge and experience on South America, and their insight into executive education and its needs was amazingly deep and intuitive. This should be a standard for all MBA tour management companies.”
