Exchange Semester – USA 2015

During my bachelor’s program, I decided to spend a semester abroad in the USA (Clarkson University, Potsdam NY). On the one hand, this experience enabled me to deepen my English skills and helped me to gain a comprehensive insight into different cultures living on an american campus. In addition, this semester improved my knowledge by participating in interesting courses taught by professors in the fields of project management, financial markets, statistics and entreupreneurship.
