I have three main options that I am looking at for studying abroad and they would sll be in the spring of 2016. I big reason I am wanting to study abroad and do international business is mainly from my Grandfather.

I also love how central London would be to many other places if I wanted to travel on abreak. My second option would be studying in Manchester. My peer mentor in BUAD100 actually told me about this last semester. It is a foreign exchange program and you stay with a host family while you are over there. It’s the cheapest out of my options and if I don’t get into GLS this is what I’ll likely do. Manchester is another big city to go to for business while still being able to stay in a country that speaks decently good English. My last option would be studying abroad in Germany.
