The CAPA London Global Business Institute Program, which I participated in during the Spring of 2020, had so much to offer! From a rigorous academic schedule that developed my knowledge of global business, to an incredible placement in an internship where I applied my skills in a hands-on environment, to a safe and comfortable housing arrangement, to fun and immersive events and activities. CAPA made me feel so supported both academically and socially. I loved every minute and would recommend the program to anyone interested in studying abroad!
