Will is a graduate of a joint Master's degree in Global Entrepreneurship and Management through the University of San Francisco, Ramon Llull University (Barcelona), and Fu Jen University (Taipei).

This is a unique program in which students spend one semester in each global city learning about cross-cultural business practices, entrepreneurship, supply chain management and an insight to business in three continents.

The 35 student cohort consists of students from 10 different countries around the world, which has deeply affected Will's perspective on our globalized business world.

The program has also given him the skills to work in teams with diverse members, to think in an entrepreneurial manner, welcome ambiguity and risk, and appreciate innovation and change. Learning to live, work and play in several new environments for an extended period helped enforce the learning experience.

While studying for this unique masters degree Will also continued to work on his start up ventures which is an intensely satisfying pursuit as it gives experience through all areas of operating a business.
