Our study tour to Moscow exceeded my expectations by miles. We visited places like the Delegation of the European Union to Russia, the Royal Danish Embassy, and the Carnegie Moscow Centre, to examine the economic relationship between Russia and the EU and Russia’s own economic growth policies. It was so interesting because with the recent conflicts between Russia and the Ukraine, Moscow was the center of global attention. I learned so much about the political climate in Russia and how Russians view their government.

The trading competition was an exciting and engaging part of the course. The event helped me gain practical knowledge about trading foreign exchange in a high pressure environment. It also provided the opportunity to network with international students and reputable professionals working in international companies. Because of the event, I had the chance to interview with the CEO of a London-based foreign exchange service company the day following the competition.
