Study Abroad


Adam Folk

‌‌Sitting in the global headquarters of Deutsche Post DHL, a world-wide leader in logistics, CCU Alumnus Adam Folk (BSBA Management 2011) enthusiastically reflected on the role of study abroad in bringing him to his current job as Key Accounts Program Manager at the global company in Bonn, Germany...Adam Folk spent the spring of 2011 studying abroad in the Certificate in International Management program at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Germany, a CCU partner university. Studying abroad at a CCU-partner institution enabled Adam to pay in-state tuition for that semester of coursework, saving his family about $5,000. His family provided that money to Adam to use to support his stay in Germany for 4 months. “I never thought about this ahead of time, but providing me with the money and having me manage it was a tremendous learning experience in and of itself, “ Adam stated. “It helped me become more responsible, as that was my budget, and I had to make good choices.”
