Life Changing Experience in the Wonderful Land of Denmark Past Review

By (International Business, California State University - Chico) for

Copenhagen Business School: Copenhagen - Direct Enrollment & Exchange

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Absolutely, my perception of how cultures function outside of the US was an eye opening experience. Denmark is a perfect example of how socialism can work, which was completely contrary to my beliefs before my study abroad experience. The woman are beautiful, the city is gorgeous, the people are extremely friendly (and most of them speak english).
