Berkeley College is proud to announce that Adriana Abreu of Staten Island, NY, has received a scholarship from the International Commerce Club NJ.

Ms. Abreu is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in International Business at Berkeley College in Midtown Manhattan. It is the second consecutive year Ms. Abreu has received the scholarship.

The goal of the International Commerce Club, based in Secaucus, NJ, is to foster international trade and development in the tri-state area.
