Vietnam - Study Abroad Opportunity
I am a sophomore within Marquette University's College of Business Administration, pursuing a major in Finance & Economics. I am ecstatic to announce that I have been privileged with the opportunity to travel with a few other business students representing Marquette University in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In addition to such an experience, I have the opportunity to obtain academic credit for my participation. With this being said, there are several costs associated with the trip. I have began to save a bit, but there are still a few costs that still need to be accounted for in order for me to pursue this opportunity. The trip will take place March 19th - 26th. Below, you will find specifics in regards to the details and costs of the trip. Whether you are able to assist or not, I am very appreciative of your continual love and support!
