- Valuable Cultural Experience02/29/12
The program caters more toward business students, but any student can benefit from this program. We got the opportunity to visit many different countries and experience many unique cultures. One of the most important aspects for me was meeting people
from all over the world and learning about their customs. Not only did we visit many countries, but there were Forum Nexus participants from many different areas of the globe and we were all able to learn from each other. I now have friends all over the world! On top of that, my professors were amazing. I am very glad I decided to go on this program!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
