The event

It’s official! It’s the RSM Sailing Club’s 10th year of the biggest summer social event in the international MBA community. Join us for The RSM MBA Armada.

This event brings RSM MBA students & alumni together with other MBA networks for a sailing adventure through the Ionian Sea. Attendees of the RSM MBA Armada will network, bond and have fun in one of the most beautiful locations worldwide.

We’ll sail from island to island, admiring unbelievable landscapes and swimming in crystal-clear light blue waters in the Western islands of Greece. This week-long trip will include different islands, where you’ll be living in the rhythms of the unique Greek summer: exploring isolated beaches, mingling with locals and enjoying Mediterranean cuisine.
