Ask me about...

  • Going abroad to Europe as a European (UK) citizen

  • Doing a program that doesn't accept many Penn students

Studying at a business school allowed me to complete courses for my economics major while also pursuing other fields that were related to my professional interests (finance). 

Other Highlights:

  • Met incredible people and longstanding friends both from the US and elsewhere

  • Spent months in a European financial hub

  • My classes and professors were top-notch

  • Adjusted well to a new culture and liked being able to travel all over Europe easily and quickly
