Hello all, my name is Evan Ramos and I am a Business Management major at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. I have recently completed the IBS 2019 Summer China tour. I am currently a senior at MSU and hope to finish up by spring 2020. For the last four years, I have been working for Wells Fargo, first as a Teller, then promoted to a Lead Teller. I am looking to enter the compliance field once I have finished my degree at MSU. Before this trip I had no prior international travel, however, because of IBS I will be looking to do much more travel in the near future.
Hear more directly from Evan:
Why did you choose your IBS seminar vs any other study abroad program?
I chose IBS Summer China versus another program because they have geared the whole tour towards business students. Instead of just going to another country and learning in their classrooms, IBS provides a much more hands-on experience. From meeting with the different executives to visiting a number of historic locations, IBS provides unique and exceptional trips.
If you had 60 seconds to convince a friend to attend an IBS program, what would you say?
I would tell my friends that if they want a travel experience that offers a variety of options, IBS is the best. For the price paid, the hotels, guided tours, meetings with the business personnel, and insight offered is the best, bar none.
What did you learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I learned while in China that if you take away the language barrier, the average Chinese and U.S. citizen is the exact same. We all want to feed, house, and clothe our families. We want a government looking out for us. And we simply want a sense of safety in our everyday lives. Yes, this is a worthwhile thing to learn, and it can only be taught by traveling abroad.
