Why study abroad in India?

Study abroad experiences alway provide a very unique perspective of a country new or old. Based on this, I knew that I wanted to study abroad somewhere where I had already spent some time on my own. This would allow me to get a very new perspective on a country that I have already had time to visit and understand. Choosing the UA Study Abroad experience with STEM MBA, I decided to visit India. Having visited before, I had had a chance...

This type of study abroad program was something I had never heard of...

Study Abroad Prague Part 2

Prague was a sight like none other. I have never seen a more beautiful place. The intricate architecture coupled with the amazing views of mountains was a sight to see. It took some adjusting to get used to the European culture. Going to eat is something you must make time for. It will not be a place to pop in and grab some quick food. Each place we ate at was a sit down place where you waited for food and truly enjoyed the company of...
