Favorite part of study abroad experience:  My favorite part of my study abroad experience was the deep sense of community that I developed with my peers and faculty as well as with the international community as a whole. I was able to gain first hand experiences working with and analyzing international business practices along-side my fellow classmates which has been fundamental in my development as a student and professional. These experiences and connections reinforced for me, the importance of social responsibility held by individuals and businesses to our communities, whether these communities be domestic or global.
