If I had to choose one word to describe my [global] experience, it would be life changing.

“Now more than ever students need access to the global market to explore diverse approaches to creativity and innovation. They need the 21st skills of global future leaders. This is why my goal as Dean is for every single student at The Creative School to graduate with at least one international experience.”
