What stood out to you about the M.S. in Global Commerce Program?

The opportunities! It truly is a once in a lifetime program. I'm not just immersing myself in different corners of the globe, I'm also working towards two Master's Degrees and a Certificate at three great universities, which will pay dividends throughout my professional career.

What are you looking forward to the most in the Program?

I'm looking forward to the non-U.S. students sharing their culture and way of life next semester. It's been so much fun introducing them to college football, U.S. restaurants, and much more, but I can't wait for the tables to turn.
