Overall Experience
My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile! I loved traveling around Switzerland and our excursion to Greece. The classes I took on sustainable finance were interesting (sometimes repetitive though). My favorite part of the program was an assignment I did in Greece where I had to speak to the locals. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
