A globalized economy needs business professionals who understand the relationships between people, culture, and economic activity. With such an understanding, a person can cultivate a global mindset that allows them to identify opportunities across a broad spectrum of different countries and economies. As many business leaders understand, a global mindset cannot be taught, it comes with experience.
The Huntsman School of Business offers Global Learning Experiences that facilitate the development of a global mindset and prepare students for entry into a business environment that extends beyond borders.
Students can choose to participate in one or more of these experiences:
The Society for International Business and Economic Development (SIBED) is the student club that focuses on global issues. All students are welcome to join.
"The South America program business visits turned out to be my favorite thing. Specifically, getting to tour the Good Year tire plant was a major highlight. The tour took about three hours, but watching them create tires from nothing was spectacular. I have gained a better understanding of large businesses and how they can run efficiently and I made great connections that can help me in my future."
