Soon I will be embarking on a semester abroad in Hong Kong! FIT has a direct exchange with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which means I can complete my Production Management major required classes while I am abroad. Learn more about FIT’s study abroad programs here.
Studying abroad is something I wanted to do during my college experience, and I am excited to have the chance to spend the whole semester! FIT offers semester-long programs, as well as ones that take place during Winter and Summer breaks. I am taking my major classes at my host university, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which means I stay on-track to graduate. FIT’s curriculum is very focused on your major classes, so I am glad I will not fall behind while I am away. Also, studying and interning in Production Management means a lot of discussion about international manufacturing. Hong Kong and China are two massive players in the apparel manufacturing realm- studying there will give me plenty of chances to better understand the local customs, geography, and to make connections.
