Program Reviews:
Laura Alice Kubicki, Summer 2015 Participant
I found interning abroad was the most rewarding element of this program because it gave me a hands-on insight to how the working world differs internationally. I love how I can tell future employers that I have international work experience. I feel as if it gives me somewhat of an advantage and would love to work internationally again one day.

Kimberly J Bolton, Summer 2014 Participant
To work abroad was an experience that cannot be replicated in any way; having to live in the city, commute everyday and live like a citizen working in London is the best decision I could have made to do with my summer. The best part by far was being thrown in and treated like a citizen of the U.K. which CAPA does a great job of.

Katherine Lynn Gross, Summer 2019 Participant
I learned more about the world, other cultures and international business. Additionally, I had to learn a lot of independence living on my own in another country. I knew I had assistance from my program with anything I needed, but also felt like my hand wasn't held throughout the whole process, which I thought was beneficial.
