Ready, Set, Go (STEM Study Abroad in India)

It’s finally here. It has been more than a year that I have planned, budgeted, and anticipated this trip to India. Unique to the STEM Path to the MBA, I am one of ten students that are traveling to various parts of India over the next three weeks to study and apply the idea of reverse innovation. Reverse innovation is the implementation of innovation but in a somewhat backwards manor. Hence, why the use of the word reverse in the...

Ciao Firenze!

Italy is beautiful, even more beautiful than I thought. I am enjoying living with my Italian mother, Anastasia.

Returning from Ghana

Now that I am back from Ghana, I feel fulfilled. I feel accomplished that I was able to travel the world all by myself and return safely. I feel as if my stay in Ghana was not long enough. I absolutely loved that country. The food, people, and just overall environment was so awesome. I don’t even think words can explain how I feel right now. I am glad I was able to immerse myself in the culture and learn things about a part of...
