Why take your education beyond the classroom? 

Imagine you’ve just been offered a job at a company with global reach like BMW, ESPN or Google. You'll be working with colleagues from around the world. The only catch? You've never ventured outside your community. How will you excel with no experience working with people from different cultures? How will you solve problems you've never encountered before? Employers know that international experience can give employees a leg up — we're here to help you get it.
