  • Global Business Experience

    The Global Business Experience is a three-credit class that integrates learning in the business disciplines with learning in international policy and consulting.  Students will participate in a semester-long course (BADM 290) that offers the opportunity to conduct a substantive consulting project for senior members of an international business or organization (private, public or non-profit) under faculty supervision.  The course will culminate in a major project that includes travel to the client country, Barcelona, Spain, for one week to present students’ findings to senior management.  The course will also count as an elective for the Regional Studies track of the International Business Major.

    In addition to the coursework, students will interact with the policy community through visits to organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Spanish Embassy. This programming will be responsive to current challenges and policy debates.  

    Student must apply to take part in this course.  The application is due by 5:00 p.m. on October 13, 2014.  To access the application, click here
