Hi there! My name is Brian Butler, and I am the founder of Summit Global Education. I have always been a curious and adventurous person, and have had the opportunity to travel extensively to countries in Europe, North and South America, and Southeast Asia.

Through my travels, I have come to believe that global experiences have the power to transform lives and broaden horizons. They expose us to new perspectives, cultures, and ways of life, and help us develop skills that are invaluable in our personal and professional lives.

I founded Summit Global Education to help other students have the same transformative experience. Our team of experienced advisors is dedicated to helping students find and participate in study abroad programs that align with their academic and personal goals.

We understand that studying abroad can be intimidating, which is why we offer support every step of the way, from choosing the right program to preparing for your journey and reintegrating upon your return.

Whether you're looking to enhance your resume, gain new cultural insights, or simply have an adventure, we're here to help make your study abroad dreams a reality.
