By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you decide to study abroad in Milan, Italy? I chose to study abroad in Milan because I wanted to be in Italy. My cousin was here a few years ago and told me how she had a great time because there is so much to do just in Italy. Outside of eating pizza and pasta, Milan is home to two major soccer teams: Inter FC and AC Milan. I’m a big soccer fan and wanted to have a historic stadium like the San Siro in my backyard. 2) What has been your most fun or interesting […]

By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you decide to study abroad in Barcelona, Spain? I knew I wanted to study in Spain because I had learned about its culture after taking Spanish classes for five years. I sadly can’t speak it very well anymore… but it has been really helpful knowing at least some words and phrases! I chose Barcelona in particular because I had heard amazing things about it (S/O to Serena) and it seemed to offer everything I would want in a study abroad program. 10/10 would recommend studying here! 2) What has been your most fun or interesting […]

By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you choose to study abroad at this place? I truly had never heard so many good things about a program! Everyone who went last year absolutely gushed about it (shoutout to Katie Benson!) and completely sold me on it. I heard it had the friendliest people and that it is the most comfortable home to come back to, which is totally true. My family is really Irish and I had always wanted to go, so it seemed like the perfect place for me. It is really nice to not have a language barrier, and […]

I was encouraged by some BC Alum to look into open job positions at Deloitte to see if I had any interest. I also had a chance to sit down with the head recruiter for advisory and we just completely clicked. She gave me multiple contacts at Deloitte to get in touch with to discuss the open positions and what it would be to […]

By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you decide to study abroad in Vienna, Austria? The reason that I chose to study abroad in Vienna was that I knew it would have a much different culture than anywhere I had been before. Also, I knew that there was a large U of I group that would also be in Vienna, and I liked the idea of being in a big program. Lastly, the Vienna program goes skiing for a week which was a great time! 2) What has been your most fun or interesting experience so far? One of my favorite […]
