Andrés de la Lama '24


Major: Economics
College: Whitman
International Experience: Bocconi University
Location: Milan, Italy

I'm a senior in the Economics department with a certificate in Finance. I was born and raised in San Diego, CA, but I have spent a lot of time in Mexico given my Mexican heritage and the proximity to the border. In the spring of 2023, I did an exchange program at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. During my time at Bocconi, I was able to satisfy the Macroeconomics departmental requirement, a departmental elective course that counted towards the Finance certificate, an intro to cognitive sciences course, and an entrepreneurship elective course called "Managing Creativity." During my time in Milan, I had the opportunity to travel across Italy, as well as several other countries in Europe including Switzerland, France, Monaco, and Portugal. One of my favorite things about studying at an international school like Bocconi was the wide range of diversity among the exchange students. The learning and living environment that the program offers is one of the most unique things I've ever experienced.
