“Coming to college, I never thought I'd have the time or money to study abroad but thanks to scholarships I received from the Smith School's Office of Global Initiatives and the Education Abroad office, I was able to make this dream a reality. It was the first time I ever went abroad on my own, and in addition to being one of the most exhilerating educational experiences of my life, it also taught me a lot about myself and helped me mature. The things I learned about process improvement and product design not only helped me in my courses, but will continue to be helpful in both my educational and professional careers. " - Anthony Trinh, China, January 2014

“It was important for me to go into each of our consulting projects humble and ready to learn. I may have had business knowledge, but I was immersed in a new market and a new culture. We developed a catalogue, an inventory system, and a method to track orders to help our client better manage costs. The trip was filled with hours of work but there were also many adventures and chances to embrace this new world: zip lining across lagoons to visiting a chocolate factory to trekking through the rainforest at the peak of the volcano Mombacho.” – Marissa Goon, Nicaragua, January 2013
