“Thanks to the U.S./Europe Double Business Degree, I’ve had the opportunity to live abroad in three different countries where I’ve had the most amazing experiences. I can say that I have grown into an independent, strong, and outgoing woman. I’ve learned how to live and interact with three different cultures which helped broaden my career. After I graduate, I would love to join a multinational company that offers me the opportunity to continue to travel and to discover the differences between the cultures all over the world.”

“The US/Europe Double Business Degree gave me the opportunity to engage with people from all over the world. I made so many new friends and went on beautiful adventures to different countries with them. I discovered a new perspective on the business world. It gave me the confidence to be independent in foreign and domestic settings and it widened my perspective of what life has to offer. This experience has inspired me to enter a career in the travel and technology industry at Expedia Group after graduation.”
