The Undergraduate Global Business Program includes great opportunities to study abroad and network with people from all over the world. It allowed me to experience different cultures, learn a new language, and nurture new friendships while studying in Heidelberg, Germany. As the world becomes more interconnected through globalization, the demand for people with the knowledge and skills taught in this program has only increased.
