BoothRight is an annual Spring Break trip to Israel that is open only to second-year students. Because of its timing and awesome itinerary, BoothRight is the perfect way to finish the Booth MBA. Essentially, BoothRight is actually a student-led trip that is initiated and led by second-year Boothies from Israel (fun fact: Israel is among the most represented countries per capita in the Booth student body). Each year, a team of 4-7 Israelis takes the reigns and organizes the BoothRight trip for 100+ Boothies. While the reward in leading such a big and diverse group of business school peers is huge, there’s also a lot of effort involved in “making it work” spanning operational, financial, and marketing functions.

I always knew that I wanted to do a semester abroad as a part of my Booth experience, but when the time came to choose, I was torn between all the options – Chile, Japan, South Africa, UK, Singapore – you name it! And all are among the best business schools in the world. I ended up choosing IE Business School in my favorite European city, Madrid! Using a very business-school approach, I will divide my experience so far into three main buckets: Academic Experience, Social Life, and Travelling.
In case you thought Booth students only studied abroad in Paris, here are some pics from other second-year Boothies scattered around the world during the 2016 Winter Quarter.

Having the opportunity to experience new adventures and learn about not only another totally different culture in the other side of the world but also about my inner self has been incredible! Yoga practicing at sunrise in Thailand!
The Booth annual ski trip is arguably the biggest Booth trip of the year, and the trip to Aspen this past December was no exception. Check out what 400 Boothies were up to for a week with the awesome video recap below, and some off the slopes pictures after the jump.
As some readers may know already, Booth offers the opportunity to study abroad through The International Business Exchange Program (IBEP). More information on IBEP can be found in this earlier blog post. I decided to study abroad at ESSEC in France this winter quarter. I was curious about courses that weren’t offered at Booth (such as International Luxury Distribution) and the chance to fit in more traveling was certainly appealing.
So far the quarter is off to a great start! Here are some highlights:
