The End

It’s hard to believe that the project has come to an end. The long hours of work and endless revisions were all worth it after our final presentation. As we wrap up the semester, I began to reflect on my professional and personal development as well as all the new knowledge I have acquired from…

Cheers, London!

At the beginning of this journey, our CAPA Internship program instructor for the Remote Global Business Institute program asked us to choose three words that described our emotions before jumping into the program. Although it took a bit of time for me to put my feelings into writing, the three words that I related to…

Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland!

With the project all wrapped up, there have been so many takeaways that will be applicable to the remainder of my college and professional career. The three biggest lessons I gained from working with Possehl were perseverance, morale, and critical thinking. As opposed to previous projects I’ve worked on, collaboration with the client was not…

The End of the Road

So far, 2021 has been a whirlwind year filled with exceptional personal growth and development. My experience interning through the Global Business Institute (GBI) this semester has been one of the biggest contributors to that. I owe so much of who I am now to Kaizntree, the company in which I interned, and to Marcos,…

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…

Concluding Our Consulting Project

The most important lesson I learned throughout this experience is the difference between high context business relationships and low context business relationships.  We learned in our class that high context business relationships mean that people think it is important to establish a relationship and a deeper level of trust before / while conducting business.  This…

Wrapping Up the Germany Project!

It’s crazy to think that this program is already over, it feels like just yesterday we met our client for the first time. This program has been one of the most beneficial experiences that I have had as a Pitt Business student thus far. Being able to gain real-world experience while collaborating with highly motivated…

Mesi!

Throughout the time I have spent with PittBusiness’s International Consulting Program this semester, I have been blessed with numerous opportunities to gain new skills, learn about different cultures, and become more grateful for many of the things I take for granted day in and day out. While participating in this program was certainly not an…

Concluding My Time in London

Before I started my internship with CAPA, I expected to be doing a lot of market-related research for my site supervisor’s previous company. However, plans soon changed once he sold his shares of the business to his younger brother. Starting in February, I began researching homes / guest houses / hotels in the Seychelles, a…
