Program Abroad:

  • Deciding where to travel on the weekends

My Experience Abroad:

Studying business in the United States is often, understandably, a U.S.-centric experience. However, while the U.S. market is large, studying abroad in Europe reminded me not only to consider the business prospects in other markets but to also realize that each place has its nuances that need to be understood.

Other Highlights:

  • Going to salsa and Spanish guitar lessons

  • Visiting the Prado Museum after taking a Spanish art course

  • Trying different tapas bars with friends from around the world

  • Walking through Puerta del Sol watching the street performers and admiring the Christmas lights

  • Dinner conversations with my host mom and my Swiss roommate
