Fort Wayne, Ind. -- Fifteen hand-picked Indiana University¨CPurdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) business students and three faculty are spending their spring break in Casablanca, Morocco, to launch market research on behalf of two northeast Indiana companies: Annie Oakley Perfumery of Ligonier and OFabz Swimwear of Churubusco.

Ahmed Rachdi, the instructor of D490 Special Study in International Business and a native of Morocco, is first taking the students to Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI), an American-style university in the middle Atlas Mountains. While they are there, the IPFW students will work jointly with teams of Moroccan students enrolled in a marketing research course taught by Professor Addelhamid Bennani of AUI.

The IPFW students have already ¡°Skyped¡± with their Moroccan counterparts, and the AUI students are sharing Blackboard-based team collaboration spaces. The IPFW and AUI students will be running marketing research focus groups together to gather data for the client firms. ¡°We are all extremely excited about the opportunities this collaboration creates for deeper understanding of our respective cultures and ways of doing business,¡± said Rachdi.

The IPFW students will visit Fes and Meknes, and spend several days in Casablanca visiting multinational corporations such as Hewlett Packard and Procter and Gamble, local Moroccan companies, and the American Chamber of Commerce.
