The Weissman Center for International Business at Baruch specializes in assisting students with their goals to study abroad. With us, the process is made easier simply by crossing the plaza and speaking to a study abroad advisor. It is no wonder that students everywhere are drawn to the idea of studying abroad, as it provides students with an amazing experience that combines culture, self-growth, and academics. But four bright Baruch students were lucky enough to get that opportunity and more! Students Nora Hristova ‘16, Jonathan Morales, Pamela Ozga ‘17, and Ruth Laryea-Walker ’16 were all awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International scholarship to study abroad for the fall 2015 semester. Nora received $3,500 and Jonathan was awarded $3,000, while Pamela and Ruth each received $2,500.
Dr. Richard Mitten, the director of study abroad at the Weissman Center said, “The whole purpose of an exchange program is to give students the most cost-effective per credit opportunity to study abroad.” In doing so, the center looks for scholarships and opportunities to make the experience possible for more students. While many may think they can’t afford to study abroad, the Weissman Center always has opportunities to make the experience as affordable as possible.
We are always looking for more students to send abroad and you could be one of them! If you’re ready to take your talents oversees, swing by the Weissman Center for International Business located at 137 E. 25th Street on the 8th floor during our study abroad walk-in hours and speak to an advisor today.
