What I learned most was intercultural and interpersonal skills. How two different countries have completely different cultures and ways of life in everyday life - that fascinated me every day (...) I can definitely say that these 3 weeks have broadened my horizons a lot.
Aynur Temel, Participant in 2022
I can truly say that participating in the Porto Sustainable Business Summer School was one of the best decisions during my studies at WU so far, as I was not only able to acquire further knowledge on an interesting topic, but also gain international experience in an exciting country in a beautiful city, while meeting amazing new people and having a lot of fun.
