Exchange to UBC – University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada

First of all, thank you so much for supporting my exchange program to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. It eased a lot of the financial burden of being on exchange in a country where everything from accommodation to shopping was noticeably more expensive than in Denmark, and allowed me to focus on how wonderful it was to be in a completely new country.

My exchange to UBC was one of three parts of the Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management program through CBS, which combines education in transportation with cultural exchange among Danes, Canadians, and Chinese.

In the classroom, I became proficient in quantitative analysis and modeling to optimize transportation costs, production planning, and strategic initiatives. The Canadian method of teaching emphasizes continuous assessment and I’ve reflected often on how much it has impacted how I study and deliver academically.

I combined my studies with participation in UBC’s Supply Chain and Operations Association, which included a tour of an Amazon warehouse where I gained insight into the daily operations of a fulfillment center.

My stay has only made it clearer to me how passionate I am about supply chain optimization, and I look forward to both continuing my studies and finding employment in the field.

Thank you again for your support!

Sincerely yours,
Rosa Leschly
