Prior to the Plus 3 program, I was lucky enough to be awarded a scholarship to help fund my journey abroad. The gift of this scholarship made me aware of the Plus 3 program and how beneficial and educational it could be. As I researched more about the program, I decided that it would be the perfect introduction to studying abroad and would greatly expand my knowledge of the world around me. All of this being possible thanks to the scholarship I was graciously awarded. During my time in China, I learned a great deal about both the culture of the country and the culture of international business. Both of these things have helped me to see the world on a larger scale and to visualize how businesses from all countries come together to create successful business plans to keep their companies alive on an international level. Going forward at Pitt after this experience abroad, I plan to continue to study more about international business by going abroad at least one more time and immersing myself in a new and unique business culture. Overall, this experience has opened my eyes to the world around me and has encouraged me to continue studying business and the different cultures engrained within this field. I am extremely grateful to have been able to participate in the Plus 3 program and am very excited to continue my business education at the University of Pittsburgh.
