Grad Praises International Business Program and Professors

“The College of Business and Economics has played a pivotal role in my academic path and future career. From growing my interest in Asia to supporting my graduate school applications, the International Business Program truly changed my life’s projection. I could not have asked for more supportive and erudite professors. The faculty was determinative in my college career, and they still unfailingly support my post-Boise State endeavors.” — Greg Wischer, BBA international business ’20, from Grand Forks, North Dakota
