Opportunity for Global Perspectives Students


LEARN HOW TO LEVERAGE YOUR LANGUAGE SKILLS IN THE GLOBAL MARKET

The International Business Institute combines both lecture and site visits to provide students with insight into how they can leverage their studies into a meaningful career in international business. The course will demonstrate to students how to meet the demands of employers who increasingly expect their associates to possess knowledge of these topics. The courses is really meant as an intro to international business management. 

The course will take place on several Fridays throughout the semester at both the College Park Campus and in Washington, DC. In addition to class lectures, the course will incorporate sites visits through the DC metropolitan area and professional development aspects. For example, last fall the course visits the Embassy of Singapore, the Embassy of Greece, and the World Bank among others. This year we plan on tailoring site visits to the individual majors/interests of the students. 

Highlights:
-       International business management topics
-       Sessions on global mindset
-       Professional development workshop
-       Site visits to companies and organizations
