MUDEC Memories

Jessie Coffey

Class of 1993

MUDEC gives students leadership skills for life.

“The biggest impact the program had on me is when I travel for work I always make sure that I look for the things that I looked for while I was in Luxembourg. MUDEC taught me leadership and how to be confident, and those are two skills that I use every day.”

It's not too late to apply for MUDEC in the fall!

Applications to study abroad at the Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg during fall of 2019 have been extended until May 1. You too can have an experience like Jessie Coffey and so many other alumni whose lives were changed for the better through their time abroad.
