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...

While Abroad

When I arrived in El Escorial, Spain for my study abroad program, I was extremely overwhelmed and jet lagged. I was nervous and afraid of making new friends, speaking to the locals, and classes. Still, I couldn’t stop looking at the breathtaking views of the monastery outside my dorm room and in the plaza. I had never seen anything like it. The architecture and the gardens were stunning. My first photo was a panorama of the...

Before I Left…

I have always wanted to travel ever since I was little, so I knew that in college I would definitely study abroad somewhere. As I started my freshman year I started looking into programs and as a Spanish minor, a program in Spain was the perfect option for me.

El Escorial de San Lorenzo

Hola Amigos! So, I have been here for a little less than a month and I have already fallen in love with everything and everyone in Spain. Where to begin… In my opinion, we are staying in one of the most beautiful and homey places in Spain, San Lorenzo. The entire town of San Lorenzo was built around a monastery built by Filipe II in the 16th century. During one of my classes, I got the chance to climb to the top of a tower in...
