Luxembourg gives students instant connections

Gregor Gilliom headshot“Friends in college become colleagues in your business network when you graduate. Having worldly experience shows, especially when you interview for jobs. It's something to talk about. When you meet someone in your career who has either studied abroad or been to Luxembourg, there's an instant connection.”

MUDEC gives students real business experience through internships

Isaac Reynolds headshotOne opportunity I had when I was at MUDEC was to be an intern at the US Embassy. I worked in the foreign commercial service section and through that role I got to interact with the commerce department and what they did overseas. To interact in that office, to work on trade leads, to prepare a few trade reports for an ambassador, at that time it was Ambassador Ann Wagner, it gave me a real front seat into how global diplomacy was working in the framework of business.”

MUDEC greatly contributes to the overall Miami University experience

Pam Archer headshotI would say that my connection to Miami is Luxembourg. Today, I'm more involved with the activities through the MUDEC Alumni Association group and when I think of my time at Miami, I was in a sorority but the sorority sisters I’m closest to are ones who went to Luxembourg with me. I think Luxembourg has been the overriding connection to Miami.”
