International Scholars Program  Goes to Rome!
Rensselaer at Hartford Vice President and Dean John Minasian (first row, third from right below) with members of Rensselaer’s International Scholars Program (ISP) Class 2 in front of the Victor Emmanuel Monument in the Piazza Venezia in Rome, Italy. The monument’s construction was begun in 1885 and inaugurated in 1911 in honor of Victor Emmanuel II of Savoy, the first king of a unified Italy.

The 22 students in ISP Class 2 earned 40 percent of the requirements toward either a Rensselaer M.S. in management degree or a Rensselaer M.S. in information technology degree during the 10-week summer program. ISP participants took part in a global learning experience in Europe and Asia.

The group sailed aboard Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 for the transatlantic journey from New York to Southampton, England. The students traveled next to Rome, Italy, to study for four weeks, and then continued on to Shanghai, China, for another four weeks. This life-changing experience was an accelerated career-building opportunity as the students prepared to make the transition from college to the working world. Of the 22 students in ISP Class 2, 19 of them are continuing their studies at Rensselaer to finish their master’s degrees.
