Global Perspectives: Melissa Liang

Kelly Franz

Melissa Liang is a senior majoring in operations management who studied abroad with the Fisher College of Business Honors Global Lab program in Brazil during Winter Break 2019.

Through the Fisher College of Business Honors Cohort program, I had the chance to spend two weeks in São Paulo and Rio experiencing a variety of companies and cultural experiences.

We competed in a case competition with other Brazilian students and not only experienced new perspectives on life but formed life-long friendships.

The discussions ranging from U.S. vs. Brazilian perspectives about sustainability to inequality in the favelas were eye opening. Experiencing the breathtaking views from Christ the Redeemer to learning about what companies are doing to empower children in favelas is so inspirational and makes me optimistic about the world.

The world is so vast, beautiful and full of life to experience, and I’m excited to continue exploring more of it.
