We are the explorers who want more than what we already know. We Frankliners engage the world with confidence and curiosity, questioning everything, even our own ideals and beliefs. We study internationally relevant topics because they matter to us, to humanity and our future. Each day is an opportunity to work through problems together. We are never alone, because we are supported by dedicated professors, our peers from 50 different countries, and an alumni population that spans the globe. We know that these connections will always be there for us.

Every semester, we enthusiastically step outside our safe haven here in Lugano, Switzerland, to learn more about the topics we love through the eyes of other cultures. By the time we graduate, we will have extensively studied the history, politics, economics, religion and arts of many different regions. We are confident, cross-cultural navigators and we aim to make a difference.

I'm in my third year here at Franklin and I truly love it here!
