My exchange to the Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, Norway, allowed me to meet students from around the world, and was an invaluable and rewarding experience. It gave me independence and a lifetime of memories and friends. The experience also helped my cross-cultural communication skills, enhancing my employability. - Kenneth Lew
