Summer at Wharton: My ‘dream come true’

27 Mar

Summer Program at Wharton School of Business, UPenn

Every student who aspires to study in the US probably has Ivy league dreams—an opportunity to be taught by uniquely talented professors and experience life in one of the US’s most prestigious institutes. My dream came true when I got selected for the summer program hosted by Wharton and BrainGain Global called Global Young Leader’s Academy (GYLA).

I attended the program last year from 2 June 2018 to 16 June 2018 and I won’t be exaggerating when I say that those two weeks were of the very best of my life. My perception of college changed with the opportunity to experience Ivy league life and interact with Wharton professors. Being taught by one of the finest and most experienced professors in the US, was nothing short of a fantasy getting fulfilled and has made my desire to study abroad in one of the finest colleges of the world, even stronger.

Over the two weeks, we were taught about various business principles such as accounting, marketing designing the product, and public speaking. These skills are important in shaping an entrepreneurial mindset and contribute to one’s growth as an entrepreneur. I also had a spectacular experience meeting the Wharton alumni and making friends with my fellow students. I have never spent a summer more productively, not only picking up key entrepreneurship lessons but more importantly, essential life skills.

Over these two weeks, I felt I grew as a person more than I ever had during the last two to three years in school. This was one of the best and most valuable experiences of my whole life.

Thank you, Wharton and BrainGain Global for this experience of a lifetime.
