Why I Enjoyed My Study Tour

“The COBA Study Abroad trip to Argentina and Chile was one of the most beneficial and enlightening experience I’ve ever had. Not only did we have fun visiting The Andes Mountains, going to an Argentine soccer match, and touring a vineyard along the Chilean coast; but I also learned unique things about culture and business practices in other countries that I will use in the future.”

"Spending a semester abroad in Shanghai, China was a smart choice for me. As a business major, having that experience on my resume looked very good to prospective employers. It helped me to find a job in market research where I get to travel all over the country. Not to mention it was one of the greatest experiences of my life! I'll never forget the friends I made and the things I learned, both inside the classroom and out."
-India Crain, Shanghai Business Semester
"An amazing, life altering experience. After such an extensive study abroad, you get a real understanding and feel for the different cultures on the other side of the world, and that it’s not just something people see on T.V. and take for granted."
-John Banner, Shanghai Business Semester
