My second semester reflections

My second semester at the University of Edinburgh was a mix of challenges and excitement. The MSc International Business and Emerging Markets (IBEM) class is very diverse; consisting of students from Germany, Syria, the USA, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, France, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Russia and Macedonia – to name a few! I am the only African in the class and surprisingly there are no Scottish students! The teaching staff are exceptional, interesting and challenge us daily.
