“Overall, I took away that strategic planning, development, and execution are crucial to positive change and continued progress, as Costa Rica exemplifies through its dedication to education and growth since a country-wide collapse in the 1980s. Academic quality and support by program faculty was superior, aiming to educate and make each student successful in the course. On a personal level, the experience has inspired a passion to explore the topic of our course – sustainable business – professionally, a potentially life-changing inspiration.”
