Rushana Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
"I am a 3rd year student majoring in International Business and Finance at Rochester Institute of Technology. This past summer I spent in London doing [an] internship in a banking industry with Global Experiences. It was great, studying different cultures, learning about London and meeting a lot of new people. I always wanted to go [to] London and not just as a tourist, but actually live there and experiencing working and studying. I had the time of my life."
"First, the company offered to have me come back next year! More importantly, the distinction of having international experience after my sophomore year of college is invaluable.
My time in London was spectacular. An experience that I will remember throughout both my life and my professional career.”
"You can travel the world and yet never truly understand it, but living and working in a different country lets you truly learn what makes that place special. You’ll find that it’s actually a lot like home."
