Determining why you would like to go on an exchange is one of the most important things you can do to help narrow your focus. Are you interested in traveling and experiencing new food, cultures and ideas? Are you interested in making new friends, seeing the world from a new perspective, gaining independence? Perhaps you would like to build networks and contacts for your future career, study with a particular professor overseas, or take unique courses only offered at certain institutions.
By asking yourself these questions and prioritizing what is most important to you, you can begin to narrow your options to those schools which can assist you in achieving your goals.
“Packing your bags to go abroad for a semester was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I have made international friends; learn to live in a different environment; join in the national celebrations of the UK. An opportunity that came once and I took it. I didn’t regret it and I doubt that you would too.”
“I will never forget the friends I made and the experiences I had in India. From the classroom to the cricket pitch, from the Taj Mahal to the Himalayans, my BizX experience provided the perfect mixture between travel and education. I strongly recommend that all DeGroote students consider embarking on a BizX adventure and truly making the most of their MBA.”
“Going on exchange would definitely be the highlight of my time as an undergraduate student so far. I got to meet people from around the world and see things that I never could have imagined. Going on exchange made me more independent and taught me so much of the world that I never would have otherwise known. The best part is that I got to change up my routine and do something different. ”
