Case Study

Name: Diana Olofsson

Country of Origin: Sweden

Internationalism at Kendall College:

Studying abroad and at a multinational college such as Kendall College is nothing but a great opportunity for you to learn and grow as a person. Not to mention the numerous friends you get to know that you can later visit in their home countries all over the world! The international student force gives you a priceless experience in the classroom and interacting with classmates from all over the world is a learning opportunity that I have benefited greatly from.

Transfer from Les Roches to Kendall College - broadening your horizons:

Having the chance to transfer from one great institution to another gives you an incredible opportunity to learn and grasp the best from two worlds. Being taught the essence of hospitality in Switzerland for three years and then smoothly transferring to Kendall to get the final senior management touch to your Bachelor degree is an opportunity too great to miss out on.
After three great years studying hospitality management at Les Roches in Switzerland, I got a chance to transfer to Kendall College to finish my Bachelor degree. The school system is different here and to my joy I realized that the USA and Kendall fits my learning style much better. Being able to transfer is the greatest opportunity you can get and because of Laureate this is possible. The transfer possibilities allow for you to learn new languages, experience new cultures and travel whilst you are studying!
