Frances Pahati, MBA - Vienna Innovation Program

“My short program exchange stretched my ability to think creatively in a business context while learning from incredible professors and other bright minds from around the world. While academically intensive, the program gave me the opportunity to learn more about the Austrian culture and its traditions. Overall, the Vienna Innovation Program was a phenomenal experience and one of the highlights of my MBA!”
