It was a worthwhile experience. I was able to learn how differently foreign businesses operate compared to those in the United States. I was able to also learn about overall cultural differences between US society, and those of other cultures. - Northern Illinois University View Entire Review

I am originally from Asia(India), I had never thought of exploring my own continent or even imagined that there is so much to see and learn in Asia. I was always more inclined towards exploring the western side. but this trip has given me a new vision and understanding of Asia. - Northern Illinois University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with International Business Seminars / IBS Winter Southeast Asia
I gained a more open mind, patience, and a hunger for travel during my experience abroad. It was worthwhile because it showed me that I would like to work on an international assignment some day, and now if an employer asks me I can say "yes!" without any hesitation or uncertainty whether or not I will be happy! - Northern Illinois University View Entire Review

I gained a greater understanding of Vietnam's history and culture, and an idea of where Thailand will be heading in the future. If given the change to do it again, I definitely would. - University of Colorado - Colorado Springs View Entire Review
