NOTE: During the current travel disruptions, the Center for Global Business recognizes the importance of ensuring that students acquire the skills and understanding typically obtained through a traditional international experience. CGB will work with students completing the International Business and Global Management programs to design tailor-made alternative projects and paths of study that offer valuable substitute credentials. Regardless of travel opportunities, students graduating from these programs will be able to discuss and leverage a robust international understanding with employers, while demonstrating their ability to apply their skills and knowledge in changing circumstances. The Center for Global Business offers support for students as they customize their degree, including help with international internships, career support, and professional mentorships.
