“Having the chance to work on a team, exchange ideas, and learn from your team members is a unique opportunity.”

—Mira Ruder-HookU-M student

“It is cool to see how the students go to class and look the same way, but I enjoy learning the differences between cultures at the root level.”

Karla Bell U-M Ross student

“The frameworks and the general mindset that is being taught in this course will definitely help me with my personal and professional path in a globalized world. It gave me confidence that I can interact with everyone around the globe on a personal and professional level.”

Eric Wagner U-M Ross exchange student

I enjoyed being in an environment that challenged my knowledge of cultures, something I have rarely willingly done for myself.

—Sage Chen
U-M Ross student

I have never had to work with students outside of my University, let alone outside of my country. The experience of working through a case with people who I have never met in person and whose culture is different from my own has been very exciting and challenging.
