WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER
The Center for Global Business supports your course of study in international business in many ways. From career preparation to community events, our students are supported every step of the way.
Career DevelopmentStudents in an IB program can get career coaching at CGB, including resume review, cover letter assistance, and personalized career counseling. This assistance includes individual work with students on incorporating their international experience into their personal brand and professional narrative.
Advising & Planning AssistanceCGB students have access to a dedicated "global readiness advisor" who is available for in-depth advising and academic planning, even during the busy registration season. Prospective students are also welcome to meet with the advisor outside of registration periods.
Mentoring for All StudentsCGB offers mentoring support for all its students. Students are matched with those who share their geographic and/or professional interests. Majors are automatically paired with CGB Board members, and minors are matched via UT's HookedIn platform.
STUDENT SUPPORT OPTIONS
International business studies open the door to a world of possibilities, and CGB is committed to helping students reach their fullest potential, both at UT and beyond. Students in international business programs therefore have a variety of support options available to them in addition to those offered by their college.

This assistance includes individual work with students on incorporating their international experience into their personal brand and professional narrative.

Canvas Community and Job Board
Students enrolled in an international business major, minor, or certificate have access to the International Business Community on Canvas, containing information on prospective employment, travel experiences, community members, events, and other opportunities. The site provides discussion boards for sharing experiences and a Job Board exclusively for international business students.
If you are a current student and do not have access to this community on Canvas, please let us know.
CGB offers a semester-long mentoring program for international business and global management students to help them craft and pursue their goals for the future. Students are paired with mentors at the start of the fall or spring term whose professional focus aligns with their interests.
Students majoring in IB are automatically paired with a member of the CGB Board of Advisors, typically in their junior year, and will have the opportunity to detail their interests prior to being matched. Students pursuing a CGB minor are matched with mentors via HookedIn - an alumni engagement platform operated by TexasExes.
