The West Liberty University study abroad trip to South East Asia tour led by Dr. Rickard Briggs included stops in Thailand and Cambodia. 

Traveling with Briggs was WLU Professor Vishakha Maskey, Ronald and Melissa Bane, Weirton, W.Va., Colleen Dorsey, Wheeling, W.Va., Loren Hall, Kenova, W.Va., Jennifer Lundy, Pittsburgh, Pa., Miah Runkle and Kevin Stryker, both of Wheeling.

In Thailand, the group visited multiple ancient temples (WATS), museums, palaces, ventured out to see a tiger reserve, and then spent a day with the elephants. They took a creative Thai cooking class, riverboat tours and dined in multiple different locations. A trip on an overnight train to Chaing Mai, where they spent a day with native hilltop villagers and elephants.

In Cambodia, they visited the city of Siam Reap, the home of Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia, and the largest religious monument in the world. They spent time interacting with the local people, and enjoying learning about how both of these countries are more different than western culture. They met some wonderful people and even learned a little of the local language.

The trip was a huge success with lots of memories to last a lifetime.

Classes in the MBA in Accounting can be taken for those only wanting the accounting classes to help prepare for the Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) Exam to obtain CFE certification, to satisfy the requirement of 150 credit hours to become a CPA, or to be counted as continuing education for those already having a CPA.

Classes are in a seven-week format with six terms over the year. The accounting classes for the MBA in accounting will be offered one at a time each year in May, July, August, and October to allow students time to focus on their study. This format will allow students to finish the MBA in accounting in less than two years.
