This past month, NearShore Technology partnered with Georgia Tech LBAT (Language for Business and Technology) to provide fourteen study abroad students the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the Yucatán history and culture. This five-week program began in Mexico City and ended in NearShore’s headquartered city, Merida. The students were each paired with a NearShore employee to work on daily projects that provided a comprehensive overview of environmental, economic, social and cultural development of the region.
