The BEAI program in Ireland was a wonderful experience. In 10 days I learned so much. The lectures were interesting and taught me a lot about international relations and the world economy. The learning however, reached far beyond the confines of a classroom. Getting to interact with professors outside of the classroom, while touring the city or having a group dinner, gave me insights into many new topics. I also learned so much from the other program participants.
This program has taught me a great deal but has also broadened my horizons and given me the opportunity to network with people from all over the world. There were many intellectual conversations that took place and the entire experience was an adventure, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have stayed in touch with many of the people who I met on this trip and we continue to learn from one another, and from the experiences we were exposed to in Ireland.
