Spain Trip 2019 // FIN 491X

#TBT: Ivy student, David Kaiser (finance) and the FIN 491X class traveled to Spain for a Spring Break study trip. Check out this video David made of their adventure!

"My experience in Spain is unparalleled by any other, having the ability to experience four vastly different cities, not only culturally, but in a business setting was extraordinary. If you are thinking about studying abroad, but can't seem to get away from ISU for a semester, this is the next best opportunity and everyone should take advantage of it. Those 10 days in Spain I will never forget or regret!"
