Suffolk University has immersed me in globalization. From Venezuela, I was dropped into a diverse city with people from all over the world and learned to communicate clearly across diverse cultures. I was lucky to go on the Israel Travel Seminar, the China Travel Seminar, and take summer classes at Suffolk’s Madrid Campus. I was also president of the Model United Nations Club; my fellow participants represented 12 different nationalities.
With each of those experiences, my cultural understanding grew exponentially. As a management major, knowing how to deal with cultural faux pas is very important to me. Although many universities offer management techniques or leadership classes, not many allow you to experience global perspectives this way. I can safely say that provides me with a strong competitive advantage.
