87. Freeman Means Diversity: Sören Jessen (MBA Exchange Student)
Leadership in business requires the ability to understand, motivate and inspire people – people from different cultures and with different educational backgrounds. The opportunity to get to know and learn from people with diverse backgrounds is an important asset in today’s globalized and fast-moving business environment. As an exchange student from Germany, I have not been at Freeman for very long but I have been amazed at how many students from different educational and cultural backgrounds I have met. Freeman has taught me to be open-minded and has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone by expanding my horizons and interacting with a diverse student body. I am confident that my exchange semester here at Freeman will help me to quickly adapt to different environments and cultures throughout my career.
