“'Principles of Economics’ with Bonnie Wilson opened my eyes to so much. It taught
me a great deal about decision-making, the way the world works and how businesses
can improve the communities they are in when acting ethically.”
“I took my ‘Intro to International Business’ class at SLU-Madrid and got to apply what I was learning in the class to the real world while I traveled through different parts of Europe. Whether we were talking about exchange rates, foreign trade zones or economic unions, I realized just how interconnected the world is. With a future in the world of business, a global mindset is vital to succeed.”
“My host mother in Madrid liked to say 'que te aproveches todo,' which means 'take advantage of everything'! So many unique and interesting opportunities come with a semester abroad. The city of Madrid is entertaining and lively, so there is always something to do, whether it's taking a walk through Retiro Park or eating tapas in Sol with friends.”
