Undergraduate Business Universities in Europe
Expanding Views of the Business World
This post was written by undergraduate student Jess Hetzel.
How do I see the world differently since I studied abroad?
Since freshman year, I’ve been told by students who have studied abroad, “It was my best experience at Carolina.” Now that I have studied abroad, I have to agree. Last spring, I had the opportunity to study abroad at the in Vallendar, Germany. I arrived in Germany hoping to expand my understanding of German business, and experience the diverse cultures within Europe. I had no idea that I would gain such a rich education in international business.
I met professors and fellow exchange students eager to share their personal experiences working and studying in their home countries. It was surprising to hear the similarities and differences between companies throughout the world. From spending four months abroad and interacting with my new friends, I see how connected the world is – in business, in education and in relationships. Even small business decisions made in the US can greatly affect individuals in Europe, Mexico, or Singapore. Universities in Turkey may be structured differently, but aim to inspire and motivate students as Carolina does.
