Ann-Kathrin Merz (SFS’19) had a once-in-a-lifetime adventure this summer! Merz travelled to nine countries on three different continents in 90 days conducting research as the 2018 recipient of the Circumnavigator Grant.
Life At SFS
Exploring Casco Viejo and negotiating prices of art in Spanish over 2,000 miles away from home offered an appeal far greater than the typical summer internship for SFS sophomores Adithi Sanjay and Meghan Mandi. Through their membership in the Georgetown Global Consulting (GGC), Sanjay and Mandi were trained and deployed to a client site abroad to work with the nonprofit organization Enseña por Panamá (Teaching for Panama) through GGC’s new fellowship.
After graduating, SFS senior Matt Beshke will join UBS as an Advisory Sales Analyst covering Asian Equities. As a Global Business major with an Asian Studies Certificate and a Chinese minor, Beshke’s studies have rendered him more than ready for his future. He says that the combination of international relations classes and major-related business courses “helped make me a smarter businessman, and will definitely benefit me down the road.”
