I loved traveling and seeing the sights. I learned to get along with people I normally wouldn't have and adapt quickly to new social and cultural environments.

Really learning about another culture from the people that live there changed my perspective forever. I truly love Vienna as a home and can't wait to return one day.

This was a great experience that allowed me to grow as an individual and experience a lot of new things. I definitely became more independent after going on this trip and learned a lot about myself and how I can handle certain situations.

It includes advanced coursework in marketing and makes ample use of the Central European context for applied case studies.
Cross-Border Interviewing and Story Development in Vienna and Segovia: The interview is intimate, immediate, and often an entrée toward the soul. Conducting interviews can be both great fun and an art form. The interview is a critical tool for journalists, and every human interaction constitutes a form of interview. This class is designed to improve and professionalize students’ interviewing skills, from the art of posing questions to the critical task of listening actively and creatively to answers.In this course, you will not just learn to interview. You will learn how to cross national, cultural and linguistic barriers while securing sought after information via the interview. Hence, teaching the courses in a German-language city in the heart of Middle Europe, and a Spanish-language city in the heart of Spain, provides rigorous venues for fieldwork. You will find interview subjects in the multitude of NGOs headquartered in Vienna and in the streets and cafés of Segovia.
