For me, doing an exchange was a non-negotiable. It was a matter of when and where, not if. I didn’t take advantage of the great opportunity that exchange offers you in my undergraduate degree, so I knew I had to when I started the Master of Management program. Experiencing education in a different country has so much value not only educationally, but personally. You get to meet students from all over the world, to experience a new education system that differs from the one you are used to, and you get to explore! The travel really excites me – I have an insatiable wanderlust. The MM program offers a variety of summer exchanges that vary in lengths from two to eight weeks. A few cities include: Cologne, Copenhagen, Shanghai, and London. Choosing where to apply could be the hardest part for some! For me, because I have already spent a few months in Asia and only weeks in Europe, I wanted to head back to the motherland of croissants, macarons, and cassoulet!
The one potential negative to going on exchange is it may have an effect on your job hunt by extending it longer than you may prefer. This is a risk I am willing to take because I don’t know if I’ll ever have this amazing experience at my fingertips again. In the end, I get out what I put in to my job hunt. So I will be working extra hard, knowing I get to spend June here:
