Bryan Wilson
“Coming to Ireland has given me the opportunity to take the next step in reach my goal. My goal is to open a sports facility/ fitness center to an area desperately in need. Studying at the University of Ulster is helping me reach that goal. The modules are challenging me which essentially helping me grow as a professional and a student. The professors give us a lot hands on work rather than testing us on the information. We have to directly apply what we learn to real life situations and tasks. Some of these tasks require group work. This helps me interact and get to know my classmates even more. Needless to say that we will have a great network of people all with different goals once we are finished here at the University of Ulster.” -- Bryan Wilson, Bowie State Alumni, 2013-2014 Victory Scholar Program (at University of Ulster)

Michele McCaughern
"One of the most interesting facets of this international management program is that there is an option to attend a class trip at the end of the second semester to Hong Kong to experience business first hand in one of the busiest business industry cities in the world. After the trip to Hong Kong we are required to write our dissertation based on our experiences on the trip in addition to intertwining a focus on a specific topic from our lectures from the first two semesters. I have gained such a great relationship with all of my classmates which has created even more excitement for my Hong Kong trip this May." -- Michele McCaughern, LaSalle University Alumni, 2013-2014 Victory Scholar Program (at NUI Galway)
