"Traveling to Chile was life-changing—the business, economic,
societal, and global knowledge I gained was extraordinary. Before,
during, and after each business visit we spent time conversing with
faculty about each business, the industry, governmental policy
impacts, and their financial status. I would recommend the
International Experience to everyone. The investment you make in
