I chose the Huntsman Program because it combined practical business knowledge with my passions of International Studies and the Language component.

What has been your favorite thing about the Program? What aspects of the Program have been most useful to you?

My favorite thing about the program is the vast and close current student and alumni network. Being able to forge an instantly close connection with another Huntsman student or alum is a rewarding and valuable experience.
