"My summer in Berlin was very rewarding. Not only did i get to see the famous attractions of Berlin , I also got to experience living in a different country and meet people from all over the world . The excursions and company visits was a very beneficial component of the program. I would definitely do it again. - Judy Moy, UB/Towson M.B.A. student (summer 2009).
