Senior/International Business and Transportation & Logistics

St. Augustine, FL

 

Why did you come to UNF?

  

The reason why I chose UNF was strictly to study international business. I knew at that moment in my education that I wanted to study business, and that’s when I learned more about the international business program. As the world becomes more globalized, international business is a necessary action in commerce today. I made the decision to study international business and have enjoyed every minute of my international studies at UNF and overseas. 

 

What is your favorite part of being a student at UNF?

 

I have two favorite parts of being a student at UNF. First, I have been able to build positive-relationships with fellow classmates and professors. As a business student, I have found that it is of high-importance to network with the people around you because many opportunities are present. I have made long-term friends at UNF, as well as met many people who I could potentially work with in the business realm. 

Secondly, I have had the opportunity to study abroad in Madrid, Spain for six months and Rosario, Argentina for one month. These experiences overseas were some of the best times of my life, in which I experienced new cultures, new languages, and built friendships in many parts of the world.  

 

What opportunities have you had at UNF that you might not have had elsewhere?

  

Studying both international business and transportation & logistics at UNF has been such a great experience and has given me many opportunities for success. I believe that UNF’s study abroad program is of the highest-quality, and I could not have had a similar experience at any other university. The Transportation & Logistics program at UNF is set up to learn all aspects of the logistics industry. From the knowledgeable professors to the hands-on case studies of transportation companies, the T&L major has produced many opportunities. Not many universities have a T&L program, which makes UNF unique and a great place to study this necessary industry. 

 

How have these opportunities shaped your "personal journey" (collegiate and otherwise)?

  

Through international business studies I have been able to learn about how business is done in most regions around the world. In my international classes, I have been able to learn about international cultures and through my study abroad, I was able to see different cultures hands-on. My international studies and experience have helped me learn how to adapt to new situations in life and helped broaden my career opportunities.  With the transportation & logistics program, I have been able to gain knowledge of a booming industry around the world, as well as in Jacksonville.
