Explorer to Executive: Why Studying Abroad Will Set You Apart After College 03/13/17

Before embarking on my journey with CIMBA this semester, I was told that one of the “selling points” of studying abroad is that employers will specifically look for it on resumes as something that can set you apart from other applicants. Did I buy it at this time? Not necessarily. In fact, I didn’t believe […]

Italy and the US: Cultural Comparison 03/07/17

Before I came abroad, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of Italy or even Europe in general. With European heritage and hearing about my Grandma’s childhood and parent’s visits, I just came to the assumption that it was an older version of the United States. After spending 7 weeks here and traveling to 6 […]

Mingling With the Locals: Add a Seat 03/07/17

While traveling to different countries is definitely one of the highlights of studying abroad, after 7 weeks here I’ve also come to greatly appreciate getting to know the culture and people of Italy. Through the Add a Seat experience, I’ve humbly come to the conclusion that the people here are just as excited to express […]

Add a Seat! 02/24/17

Although CIMBA is located in a pretty small town outside of Venice, the staff does an amazing job of keeping us busy so it doesn’t always feel like we are in a small town! This week, I had the opportunity to interact with some more locals and get a small taste of their day to […]

The 5 Types of Friends In Your Study Abroad Travel Group 02/24/17

One of the best parts about studying abroad in Europe is the opportunity to travel to a new place almost every weekend. But traveling wouldn’t be nearly as exciting if it weren’t for the people that you are able to share it with. So while the scenery, the food, and the history of wherever you […]

B-School Bon Voyage: Why Every Business Student Should Study Abroad 02/22/17

As a diehard Hawkeye, I was truly bothered by the idea of missing out on my second semester of my junior year. Having only three semesters left in the heaven known as Iowa (yes, I just made a Field of Dreams reference), I had no interest in cutting it short. This isn’t to say that […]

Navigating the Italian Culture 02/21/17

After spending a little over a month in Italy, I have learned a few things about the cultural norms here. At first I found some of them annoying but now I am gaining a better understanding of why Italians do what they do and how I can better submerge myself into the Italian culture.   […]
