Tashi Sherpa, a Career Track MBA student from Nepal, founder of Hike With Sherpa, took a group to Mount Everest’s South Base Camp at an elevation of 17,598 feet. The group included two of Sherpa’s fellow MBA cohort members, Michael Smolucha and Micaela Smith.

A recent article in the Boise State student news publication, The Arbiter, tells about the creation of Hike With Sherpa and how three MBA students applied their MBA knowledge and skills to improve the trekking company.
