I'm not in a program yet but will be applying R2. I've been looking at some of the exchange programs at some of these schools and they look really interesting. Who wouldn't want to live in Istanbul or Rio for a semester....sounds like a great idea to me.
Now....I'm going to be shooting for IBD post-MBA and I'm not currently in IBD so I don't have that going for me.....would it be smart to study abroad in the Fall or Spring of my 2nd year. I'm sure it all depends on whether I land an internship and get the offer immediately after I'm done.
Just curious to see how many of the MBA's on WSO have done this or is it considered a stupid decision if you're aiming for IBD or some other highly compettive industry....
I didn't have the typical undergrad experience so I couldn't study abroad so any kind of input would be cool, how was your experience? any crazy stories?
