This was their biggest year yet with 159 inspiring entries. Of these 159 entries, the InternationalStudent.com staff had the difficult task of narrowing down the list to only a few top finalists. Fourteen finalists were selected to progress into the next round, these videos along with the Viewers’ Choice winner means 15 videos are still in the running for the $4,000 grand prize or one of the other runner-up prizes.
The Viewers’ Choice award went to Carlos Roberto González Meyer for his video A Couple of MBAÂ´s. Watch this video and see why it won the votes of numerous visitors on InternationalStudent.com.
