Barack Obama: The Six Billion Dollar Man

Barack Obama 6 billion dollars

There is a rumor going around Washington DC, that there was some kind of election last week. Things are back to normal now with college students practicing their football plays in front of the Capitol. Just in case you missed the election the results can be summarized as follows. $6 billion dollars spent, nothing changed. But that is just the point; sometimes the status quo is the best option. It is having the possibility to choose that counts.

STUDY ABROAD / INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE : TURKEY, Istanbul

Marie Elizabeth Lelu, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Koç University.

Studying in Turkey

Turkey is relatively young and dynamically emerging country.  It is amazing to witness the refinement of Istanbul, which once was the cultural and political center of the most powerful empires. In this city which never sleeps, and connects two continents Europe and Asia, it is hard to believe that you won’t be enjoying amazing moments!

When I arrived to Milan,  I didn’t expect how enjoyable my stay will be. Italian people were so kind and helpfull to me, and as Milan is a cosmopolitan city, it was easy to meet other foreign people to share everybody’s values.

STUDY ABROAD / INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE : China, Guangzhou

Foucauld Watine, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about his experiences at Sun Yat-Sen Business School.

If you can seize the opportunity of an exchange program – do it! I experienced Guangzhou but I am not sure everybody enjoys this city. I am far from saying it’s beautiful, no, but it’s highly instructive. Guangdong Capital, located on the shores of the Pearl River delta, is the cradle of world´ manufacturing. Therefore this place grabs attention of anybody who wants to benefit from its infinite supply capacities.  The fascinatingly complex Chinese culture is mixed with Cantonese culture but it doesn’t get the things more difficult than anywhere else in China – it hardly can!

Being a student at the American University? An amazing experience! Living in the campus with roomates from other countries or seeing squirrels in the graveyards, taking courses of teachers who teach you to think and express yourself properly, you will simply live the experience of your life that makes you grow up.

STUDY ABROAD / INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE : Denmark, Copenhagen

Natacha Durand, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Copenhagen Business School.

  

What could I say to sum up the 6 months I have spent in Copenhagen? Maybe I should not because this experience needs to be entirely narrated. Even better, lived.

Discovering Copenhagen and the Danes were an everyday surprise. Even in the cold and short days of winter, I could find some warmth, around a Carlsberg with friends experiencing the Danish concept of “hygge”. The “hygge” could be described as well as coziness inside your place and as spending a good time with people you care about around a cup of coffee or a meal. In Copenhagen, the hygge is everywhere: at CBS’s cafeteria, in the dorms, in the metro, in the malls, in the cafés, in the night parties of the Kødbyen… Many of my best memories are made with the bike-arounds, getting lost, enjoying the many parks and waterfronts, discovering new places and adoring this amazing Nordic capital.

All of it make me say: “I hygge Denmark”!
