Student Profiles

Emma Coggins

My name is Emma Coggins and I am from Concord, NC, just right outside of Charlotte. I graduated from Jay M. Robinson High School, studying French for four years, therefore I’m enrolled in the French Track of the IBDD program. I chose NC State specifically for Poole College of Management’s IBDD program. This program is an opportunity for me to move abroad and experience studying and working in a foreign culture. After graduating from both NC State and NEOMA Business School, I will have the skills that I need to be successful in the global business world that we experience today. I hope to put my foreign language skills to use and work for a multinational company that allows me to travel during my career.

Phillips Glass

My name is Phillips Glass and I am from Charlotte, NC. I graduated from South Meck High School and have studied German for 13 years now, because of that I am enrolled in the German Track in the IBDD program. Choosing NC State was a last minute audible for me because I originally had my heart set on the University of South Carolina, then I learned about the IBDD program and it completely changed my decision. The program is truly one of a kind due to the abroad experience students receive. After graduating from NC State Poole College and ESB Reutlingen I will definitely have the skills necessary to separate me from others when it comes time for me to find a job.

Logan Smith

My name is Logan Smith and I’m from Advance, North Carolina. I graduated from Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School in Kernersville, North Carolina. The language track that I am enrolled in is the French Track. I chose IBDD because of its uniqueness and rigor. The opportunity to travel overseas and learn about how business is conducted differently, both in a professional and classroom setting is not only valuable but is also a real-life exposure to a new world. Upon graduation from both institutions, I will be equipped with a global mindset and crucial intern experience. Preparing myself for professional success whilst living in a country I have always dreamed of living in is the epitome of making the most of my college experience.
