The Student Experience Abroad
Kristine Lai, CAS '21

"I was deeply involved in economics and finance research on an international platform and gained a priceless amount of knowledge. Not only did my internship give me a range of knowledge, spanning from innovation and energy, to venture capitalism in Australia, it also gave me niche and specific expertise in areas that I spend days on days researching."
