My name is Haley McArthur, and I am extremely grateful and beyond excited to study abroad in China this summer! As a rising sophomore in the College of Business Administration here at Pitt, I know that this is an incredible opportunity since its so early on in my college career. As soon as I heard about the Plus3 Program being my first chance to study abroad, I knew it was something I had to pursue!
I was born in Canada, but I grew up in Randolph, New Jersey. Other than traveling to Canada to visit family, I don’t have any international experience. I hope that China is the first of many experiences abroad to come!
During my time at Pitt, I will be double majoring in Accounting and Business Information Systems while participating in the Certificate Program in Leadership and Ethics. I love that I get to study these subjects in a city as amazing as Pittsburgh, and I can’t wait to learn more about international business through my studies in China. I’m also excited to be immersed in Chinese culture so I can truly appreciate it, and use this experience to expand my global mindset.
I can’t wait to land in Beijing in just a few days!
