Hiking Mount Holyoke

Living in a dorm is a brand new experience for most people. It can be daunting and a bit overwhelming at times, but for the most part it is a very valuable and important part of the college lifestyle.

Business in Italy: Winter Study Abroad

Powerpoint slide: Business in Italy Information Session

Next winter break, I will hopefully be participating in the Business in Italy program, hosted by Isenberg. The 12-day study abroad experience that accompanies the course takes you to fives cities in Italy during the winter break session. Classes for the course are on Tuesday evenings beginning in late October. You earn three credits toward Isenberg's upper-level business elective requirements. Not enrolled in an ISOM major? This experience is open to students of any major! The course focuses on learning about the business culture in Italy and the processes of various Italian companies, many of which you will get to visit on the trip.
