GWSB students share their experiences from around the world

High tea and views of London Skyline- bonuses of being in LondonWhy I Went Brit, and Why I Don’t Want To Go Home!

Well, this is the last time I will be writing from the Eastern Hemisphere:  my three month immersion in the culture of London and Queen Mary University has come to an end. It is honestly the saddest feeling in the entire world.  When finals were picking up, I did have moments of homesickness; I wanted to be home for Christmas, with everything so decorated and pretty, spending quality time with family away from all the papers and obligations I had during the final week of the semester.  Yet, now my papers are finished, the feelings have reversed back; I do not want to go home at all. READ MORE

In the third and final chapter of classes with GWSB Paris, we took Financial Management and Markets. While I was nervous in the beginning, as this was my first (maybe last) finance class, the course was very interesting for someone who is not math and number minded like me. While I can’t speak for finance courses at GW, in Paris having the course 3 hours each morning was very conducive to learning and I was able devote all my attention to the material. Finance was composed of 3 exams on smaller segments of the course (3 chapters each). My roommates and I would spend lazy Sunday’s sitting around the apartment studying and listening to all of our favorite holiday music. (Frozen is shockingly great to study to.) READ MORE
