            WIT offered me an excellent opportunity to study abroad thanks to their connection to my home college. During my stay, I studied Business Marketing/ Business Administration Marketing (Canada). The faculty and students were extremely welcoming, and I thoroughly enjoyed my semester abroad at WIT. I would definitely suggest WIT as an exchange opportunity to future students!
