My Experience Abroad:

As a student of the Huntsman Program, I want to develop a unique, multifaceted worldview and global perspective in the world of business. At ICADE, I was able to pursue interdisciplinary coursework and immerse myself in the Spanish culture with classes that broadened my perspective, while fulfilling requirements for my International Studies major, Wharton requirements, and Hispanic Studies minor.

From working on strategic business projects in groups with other international students to analyzing cinematic tools and movies produced during Franco's reign, I formed close relationships and learned a lot from my peers and professors. It was fascinating and insightful to apply different business frameworks and models taught around the world, which were slightly different than ones I have learned at Wharton. Through my coursework, I was able to enrich my academic learning and develop a deeper understanding of the complex, international business world today.

Other Highlights:

  • Traveling across Europe with friends

  • Finding the finest eateries in every city

  • Exploring and hiking in Scandinavia

  • Partaking in regional Spanish festivities

  • Making friends from different countries
