Junior accounting major Drew Egan said his CIMBA study abroad trip to Italy allowed him to be both a scholar and a sightseer. CIMBA, the Consortium Institute of Management and Business Analysis, provides KU students with the opportunity to meet international leaders, tour local companies, attend musical events, and explore Italy on their own. During his trip, Egan visited many sites, including the Sistine Chapel. Here, he is seen with friends in front of the Vatican. Interested in applying? Applications are now open for the spring 2015 semester. http://bit.ly/1rx0B9v Tags: KU Study Abroad #exploreKU #KUstudents #StudyAbroad #Italy #Vatican #Travel #Business
