Abstract

Germany a storied and complicated country has all the core elements in order for a student to have an unforgettable experience. Having the opportunity to expand my knowledge while studying in Fulda, at Hochschule University of Applied Sciences, motivated me to learn more about different business perspectives. Studying and visiting different industries in Germany allowed me to observe how companies administer their business. At the university the students really mentored us and provided us with resources and knowledge along with different perspectives to apply objectively in our classes. The, “Border Experience” at Point Alpha was one of the many highlights from my trip. The memorial site represents a unique testament to the power struggle between two political systems during the Cold War. To better understand how the European Parliament functions compared to our government in the U.S, we had the opportunity to role-play at the Parlamentarium Center in Brussels. The exercise’s conducted required us to negotiate within our group on how to build the future we want to see for Europe. The issues discussed consisted of water solidarity and micro-chipping. The goal was to find a compromise in order to legislate. This taught me about the differences on how each countries legislation operates. Education abroad is a phenomenal chance to push the boundaries of your comfort zone and to explore your passions. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have been chosen to share my experience. It was a privilege to study in Germany and proudly represent Cal State San Bernardino.
