  • IGENZ really gets it… they understand both education and travel. Jan and the IGENZ team understood and supported our educational objectives from beginning to end. They also managed logistical details with such skill that the travel seemed effortless. IGENZ truly believes in students, and their enthusiasm shows. We could not be more pleased.Prof David Lust, West Texas AM University May 2019
