Asper School of Business student receives the McCall MacBain International Fellowship

Martín Glikman is the first UM student to be awarded a McCall MacBain International Fellowship. He will be spending a year abroad to study, live and work in South Korea.

Glikman is in his fourth year of the Bachelor of Commerce program in the Asper School of Business. He is double majoring in finance and international business.

“I applied for the McCall MacBain International Fellowship because I yearned for the challenge of immersing myself in a new country, mastering the local language, establishing a sense of belonging, and truly making it my own.”

“As an international business student, I have tried to develop a global perspective and learn about different cultures,” says Glikman who previously took part in an exchange semester in Portugal, which was “one of the best chapters” of his life. He was eager for another, more in-depth international experience.

When he heard about the opportunities provided by the McCall MacBain International Fellowship, he knew he had to take the chance and apply.
