"The opportunity to get an MBA in the United States is something that every student with a background in economics dreams about.  At Northern Illinois University we study and work side by side with great professors and students coming from all over the world. The Global MBA Program gives us the opportunity to learn different approaches to business. Since 2015, I have been working with Italian and European institutions.

“I'm honored to participate in the exchange program between Northern Illinois University’s Global MBA program and my home university, University La Sapienza in Rome, Italy. Coming to the United States for studies was a big challenge for me; but I believe hard work pays-off. I consider myself as a cosmopolitan, so meeting people through the MBA program with different backgrounds and experiences makes me feel a part of something special. NIU stands for its promising individual approach, contemporary style, technical resources, and versatile learning and teaching methods. These all have critical importance for shaping us to be professionals. Our thoughts today affect our realities tomorrow, so a healthy mindset beginning from the classroom environment will lead us to extreme success in the business world.”
