As citizens of the world, we have a global responsibility to create impactful change for the better.
A degree in International Marketing Management has definitely prepared me to be at the internship I am today. Franklin classes gave me the necessary tools to perform and contribute with excellence in my chosen field, Marketing.
One thing I love about Franklin is the advantage we have of attending smaller classes. It gives us the opportunity to meet and talk with our professors more frequently than at other universities, and this is not only with faculty but staff as well. Thus, leading to great discussions and connections that are hard to find anywhere else but Franklin.
Writing a thesis at Franklin was one of the most rewarding things I ever did for my education. Now in preparing to write my master’s dissertation, I have a level of confidence I wouldn't otherwise possess.
What I loved most about Franklin is that from the moment you step foot onto campus, you become part of a multinational and cross-cultural environment that stays with you long after you graduate. It’s an experience that everyone deserves, and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
