Tyler J Ryan, Summer 2018 Participant
Had a great time on the trip! Was very educational and a great opportunity to network and meet other Concordia students.

Dion L Saffold, Summer 2017 Participant
The experience of nine days in Austria was worth more than I could imagine. I was initially embarrassed that I only knew a single language, but I feel I did a good job putting any ethnocentric attitudes to the side and immersed myself in the culture. I learned a tremendous amount during my international experience in Austria, from the structured learning in the conferences to learning from my peers and international people in which I networked and interacted. These experiences expanded my knowledge and understanding in my MBA concentration immensely. Being able to explore this opportunity for my MBA helps me to grow my cross-cultural awareness greater than what could ever be accomplished in any classroom. I enjoyed meeting a wide variety of cultures away from my 'home field'. Being outside the US was a great help to take the focus off my own culture and allowed me to stretch and expand my mind ensuring that I did not hold an ethnocentric mindset.

Summer 2018 Participant
This study abroad trip was an awesome experience and I would 10/10 recommend. We had the opportunity to experience the culture of Europe and also attend a business conference with professionals speaking from all over the world. It is a once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad I decided to attend. Definitely worth the money.
