The Global Ambassadors Program
Starting in the Fall 2020 term, the Center for Global Business will offer International Business majors and minors the opportunity to become a Global Ambassador. With this distinguished designation, Ambassadors will receive access to advanced technical and managerial skills, connection to global leaders through, and the opportunity to apply for scholarships for international experience. The Ambassadors program will be open by application, with selection criteria to include academic performance, diversity of regions studied and skills acquired, international experience, and other accomplishments.
Cultural Analysis Framework
The cultural analysis approach developed by Director Deirdre Mendez is the basis for the Global Management Certificate at UT. Through this innovative program, students learn a framework for solving culture-based problems, which they apply during an international experience to integrate theory and experiential learning. This cultural analysis methodology is detailed in Dr. Mendez’s book The Culture Solution, and in the Center’s Cultural Analysis Toolkit. Both are widely used in study abroad and international internship programs at universities in the U.S. and abroad.
