I studied abroad in Croatia during summer of 2013 under Footsteps Through The Adriatic program.

1. Where and when did you study abroad?
Last week, the EMBA program traveled to South Africa for company visits and cultural excursions. Prior to departure, students do research on a company and the industry and then during the trip, they meet with their clients to discuss their consulting project.

- Pilsen: factory of the most famous Czech beer Pilsner
- Cesky Krumlov: Small city in South Bohemia considered as UNESCO World Heritage site.
- Karlovy Vary: Small spa town situated in western Bohemia. It is historically famous for its hot springs. It is the most visited spa town in Czech Republic.
- Karlstejn Castle: Gothic Castle built by Charles IV. It is 30 min away from Prague.
One of the main reasons that made me choose Prague was its perfect location. Czech Republic is located in Central Europe and it has borders with Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Austria. I can even say that Prague can be considered as "the heart of Europe". It is really easy to travel anywhere else from Czech Republic. Another reason for choosing Czech Republic was that everything is really cheap! I could get a really good meal for less that $5. (Hint: Beer anywhere in Prague is $1)
This spring break, the Honors program visited Seattle, Washington to talk with companies and explore the region!
We presented our initiative to the judges and won FIRST PLACE!!!
We are excited and getting ready to present! We just arrived to the Department of State and will be presenting soon! We will keep you updated after our presentation, but we are very excited and grateful to be here!
The four of us are on our way to D.C.! We are looking forward to meeting our two other team members once we arrive to D.C. They're coming from Cleveland and Arizona. Once we arrive we will get settled into the hotel and begin practicing for our presentation on Monday!
Overall, the experience was magnificent. The exposure to business in Dubai both small and large was fascinating. I have toured other countries and even participated in a trade mission to Egypt for a printing convention. I had been in free zones then, but I had no comprehension of what exactly that meant for me as a buyer or for the companies located there. This is a testament to both the trip itself, and the program as a whole. The added benefit of this trip was to spend time with the cohort that had met in person only once before. I know there will be lifelong friendships from this program, and I look forward to working with my classmates in the future.
Take a perfect coastal town and put it between the sea and a mountain. Now add steps. Lots of them, and there you have Dubrovnik.
