“This trip was absolutely worthwhile. I met friends that I will have for the rest of my life and gained knowledge that I will use forever.”

– Louisiana State University, Winter One 2016 Alumni

“This program is the perfect way to meet new people, travel internationally, and have a unique educational experience all at the same time. IBS puts a lot of thought and effort into creating their one-of-a-kind programs and it truly shows. My world views were challenged, and I gained a deeper understanding of myself and where I see my career in the future. The professors were very knowledgeable about everything from the companies to great restaurants around the various cities. This program was truly life changing and worth every penny!”

– Murray State University, Winter One 2016 Alumni

“I learned that there is a whole world outside of my own. I hadn’t gone traveling outside of the US at all, so I was very used to the American, especially southern, culture. Being immersed in another culture was a very humbling experience in that I was in an unfamiliar place and had to reply to reply asking others for directions, and sometimes just feeling completely lost. It not only taught me how to respect other cultures but to embrace them. This trip was more than worthwhile. The lessons I learned in these two weeks could never be taught as effectively in a classroom.”

– Louisiana State University, Winter One 2016 Alumni
