"You don't realize how much bigger the world is until you see and experience it for yourself in Darden's highly global and diverse setting. You find people who are a lot like you but also different enough to learn from each other and celebrate each other's differences. And you discover a lot about yourself, mostly how much potential you have and how to help better a person, a company or some part of the world."
