Amazing one year in London followed by four months in Bangkok

I started my journey with Mountbatten in March 2014 and it ended in July 2015. During this time, I really grew as a person both professionally and personally. I made some lasting contacts through this program, but it really served as the perfect opportunity to travel while young. I visited 18 new countries during this time and looking back I am really amazed at how much I was able to achieve in such a short time. My workplace was the perfect setting to develop my professional skills and it is thanks to this program I was able to land my current position at a trade association. I am grateful programs like these exist and wish the Mountbatten Institute all the best in the coming years.
Opportunities abroad and beyond

In March 2015 I began an internship within the HR department at UBS in London. It's now one of my favorite cities in the world. Coming from NYC, that says a lot! It's such a liveable, lively city and I miss it terribly.
My internship at UBS has opened the door for further career opportunities. Starting this spring, I'll be working within UBS' Investment Bank in NYC as part of a global project team--serendipitously the team is a group of former Mountbattens.
Mountbatten Institute provided me an amazing work experience with like-minded people who span the globe. I can't recommend this program enough. It has changed my life's trajectory for the best.
One of a Kind Program

My year with Mountbatten was amazing. There is not another program out there that offers such a unique experience. To be able to spend a year living in London for such a small cost is one thing but what you get out of it makes it one of a kind.
I was able to leave the program with my Masters in Entrepreneurial Leadership, spent a year interning with Citi Private Bank in a position I would not have been able to be placed in without Mountbatten, traveled all over Europe and created relationships with people from all over the world.
I went into my 12 month program with high expectations and Mountbatten exceeded all of them!
The best year I could have imagined...

My experience abroad was nothing short of extraordinary. Mountbatten is a unique and very rewarding program that has changed my life for nothing but the better. The work experience has been invaluable to my career. I worked in marketing and communications for Thomson Reuters in London and now I’ve been able to continue after my year with the company in New York City. Over the year in London I developed lifelong friendships and an even stronger passion for world travel and global businesses. I would recommend Mountbatten to anyone who is looking to further their career, education or personal development as a global citizen.
