Ready or Not… Here We Go! 01/31/19

I can’t believe it!  By this time next week, I’ll be in a different country, different time zone, eating different food (bring on the pasta and gelato!) with people I have never met before.  I know this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be nothing short of amazing!  But to say I’m not nervous about anything would be […]

Pre-Departure Jitters! 01/31/19

I am off to Italy! Embarking on any new journey comes with a myriad of emotions and thoughts. I said my goodbyes to my parents outside the airport, and as I entered the airport sliding doors, I could feel a sense of nervousness, freedom, and excitement. I soon met up with other CIMBA students, which […]

Growing Pains 11/27/18

The most challenging part of studying abroad is the growing pains. You’ll experience some of the best moments of your life while nurturing amazing new friendships and connections, but sometimes you’ll catch yourself wishing you could share this experience with your loved ones back home.

Company Tours, and Baby Clothes, and Warehouses, oh my! 11/15/18

This week CIMBA planned a company tour for us. They divided us up by major and sent us on our way to see what an Italian run company looks like. I had the opportunity to tour “Il Gufo”, a high end manufacturer of baby clothes. They walked us through their daily operations, design schedule, and […]

Why CIMBA? 11/14/18

I’ve known for years that I wanted to study abroad when I was an undergraduate student. Though I hadn’t decided exactly where, I always imagined myself in Europe. After many visits to the study abroad office and extensive research on the different programs, I decided CIMBA was the best possible program available for business students. […]
