Time to Say Goodbye

As our project concludes, I am left with three emotions: sadness, satisfaction, and hope. I am sad because this marks the end of my time working with my team, Amizade, and CEOLI, who have all been absolute pleasures to work with. My satisfaction stems from the fact that our team was able to deliver what…

Chao, CEOLI!

While working on the Pitt Business International Consulting project this semester, I was able to expand my professional experience and skills. I have been able to work on tasks I never imagined I would be professionally involved in, like searching for international grants or event planning. I have also noticeably improved on so many skills…

COVID Concerns

The Coronavirus has impacted Bolivia and our clients dramatically, just like everyone here in the United States.

Since my group has two different objectives that need to be addressed, we decided to split…

It feels like just yesterday we had our very first introduction meeting where we learned about our clients for the first time. I can still remember how excited my group was to be planning an art show, writing grants, and…

A Virtual Trip Across The Pond…To Germany!
