Student Profile

Russia is not like the rest of the world, or at least any country I’ve visited or had an opportunity to study…I have learned so much more about Russia and the Russian economy than I ever thought I would. On study tour, we visited the Delegation of the European Union to Russia, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, and the Royal Danish Embassy…. giving us once in a lifetime opportunities to have discussions with officials and diplomats we otherwise not have access to.”
