Go to London and Learn Things!

Anyone who attends this program will benefit from it, not only from the exciting excursions, but also from the site visits to local businesses. We toured Cambridge, went on a walking tour of London, and ended the trip with champagne at the top of the Shard. The visits to local businesses were very informative. The best site visits to me were to Edspace, a startup focusing on providing space for new businesses focusing on developing education, and to the Chamber of Commerce. The Edspace visit taught us a lot about how startups work and the differences between a standard business. The presentation at the Chamber of Commerce explained about the differences between London and the United States, with a focus on comparisons to New York. You will not only have fun on this trip, but you will also learn plenty. Definitely go if you can, you will get a lot from it.
