Hi everyone, I a college senior and am going to be doing a one-year MBA program next year (Fall 2014 - Spring 2015) that focuses on international business and emerging markets. Because of the nature of the program, it has us traveling to three different continents (Africa/Middle East, China/SEA, and South America) for roughly 5-6 weeks at a time. While there, nearly everything is covered in the program tuition (i.e. accommodations, food, domestic transport); however, the airfare to get to the locations is not. So this brings me to my question I have for you all: what is the best way to take advantage of mileage programs to reduce the cost of my overseas trips? Currently, I have an account with United and have racked up roughly 60,000points with them, and have signed up for the Barclay Arrival Card that I will begin using soon. Any other tips or suggestions you may have please feel free to let me know.
