“Wayne State’s affordable education was very enticing coming from a low-income family. My visit was the deciding factor. The friendliness and sense of community was evident. My study abroad experience in Greece motivated and inspired me to seek my International Business degree, because In today’s business world, international business is becoming more globalized. That’s the way the world’s moving.”
