It will prepare you with the intercultural skills that will make you more marketable to a future employer.

St. Petersburg as the location for your exchange semester also promises lots of opportunities for an enriching experience. From museums and cultural sites, some within walking distance from campus, to theaters, music venues, and a bustling night scene, the city will welcome you into the environment that has inspired and fostered some of the top Russian and international minds. The most European of Russian cities, St. Petersburg features a unique blend of culture, sports, and entertainment, as well as offers easy access to European destinations.
