Student Testimonials

I am so grateful for the opportunity to visit some places that are less talked about. Santiago is one of the coolest cities I've ever visited, and we really started to feel at home in Chile. Peru was equally amazing, and Machu Picchu could not be beat. These places gave us the best that nature has to offer: snow-capped Andes, beautiful vineyards and breathtaking ocean views. Visiting companies in various industries there has helped me to see how many of the concepts we learn in Terry play out in the global economy. The best parts of the trip, however, were creating relationships with our professors, peers and local guides—there's something about international travel that unites people quickly. This trip gave me a new found love for South American culture, and I have every intention of going back.

The Terry in South America Program was truly life altering! In my opinion, there is no other study abroad opportunity that can provide both the aesthetic and educational value that this program did. From climbing the sacred ruins of Machu Picchu to sitting in a boardroom with CEOs of multinational corporations, the Terry courses brought together practical business concepts with the rich cultural exposure that make the program truly unique. My personal highlights from the trip include reflecting on the crystal clear Laguna Inca and receiving career advice directly from the CEO of Deloitte Peru.
