CEA CAPA Education Abroad: London, England

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Through this program, I learned a lot about myself both professionally and personally! I was able to take a global business management course and complete an internship during my summer experience. Having this global mindset and past work experience has really helped in my courses and following internships! Personally, the abroad experience helped me build independence, commuting to work each day and exploring a global city! I mapped out landmarks and tried to fit in as many trips as possible!
