Perfect

Going to Milan, Italy with IES was the best decision I have every made in my entire life. I truly was pushed out of my comfort zone unlike any other experience in my life. I met new people and was immersed in a new culture. The location was fantastic and teh program was so helpful. I grew exponentially as a person and would advise this to anyone.

What would you improve about this program?
Live closer to other students.

My Italian Adventure

My typical day would start in my apartment with my four amazing roommates! One of our roommates was our CA, or community assistant. She was a native Italian who really helped us adjust to living in Italy and was just a wonderful roommate in general. Then we would head to the IES Abroad Center via the metro and have our Italian class only for the first month of studying abroad. For the three remaining months I participated in a Social Innovation class, a Fashion Management class, an Internship Seminar class, and an internship at a cool e-commerce company where I worked for about 10-12 hours per week. My commute was always using the metro which was very easy to use and figure out. Typically after classes we would all have lunch at one of our favorite sandwich shops - Panini Durini and then go and explore Milan! Almost every weekend I planned a trip with friends in my program to another place in Europe such as Amsterdam, Lisbon, Barcelona, and Munich!

What would you improve about this program?
The one thing I would change would be the registration for classes before we got to Italy. I feel like I could have been registered for all of my classes prior to my arrival since I only took classes at the IES Abroad Center. However, IES does offer amazing opportunities to take classes at local universities such as University of Milan, Cattolica, and Bocconi, and registration for those universities almost completely needed to occur once we all arrived in Italy.

IES Abroad Milan

I absolutely loved my experience in Milan and learned so much about the culture, language, and people. I was paired with an amazing host family who were so loving and happy, and taught me so much. I improved my Italian immensely, and my cooking skills! The classes were challenging, but not impossible, and I learned a lot about fashion, cooking, the Italian language, and photography.

What would you improve about this program?
My biggest problem was that the program was advertised as a business studies program, but only provided one class that was through IES.

Amazing Experience

I would recommend this program to anyone. I enjoyed studying in Milan probably more than I would have in another Italian city because it is not a typical place for American students to study abroad. It is not a tourist destination. It forced me to step outside my comfort zone, speak to people in Italian and live in the everyday Italian lifestyle. IES Abroad was also a great program because the staff was very supportive and the group of students on the program was great.
For anyone studying business, I would recommend taking advantage of the fact that IES Abroad has an affiliation with Bocconi University, the top University in Italy. I took classes there which I absolutely loved because it gave me the chance to really experience what an Italian college is like and I met a lot of people outside of the program.
