The goal of UConn Global Business Programs is to develop unique and impactful programs with an interdisciplinary focus on culture, so as to help prepare our business students for the global marketplace. The UConn School of Business GBP office recognizes the importance of enhancing the student experience on all levels of learning. Important to our mission is to provide international business programs with an emphasis on cross-cultural awareness for students at the undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. levels in order to:
- Expose students at all levels to the international business issues that emerge from the confluence of culture and all areas of business
- Develop a consistent international business orientation in our students from undergraduate education to Ph.D. research, with respect to the context of culture
- Create opportunities for overseas experiences for students, whether through study abroad programs, or conferences and research initiatives
The programs offered span a wide variety of approaches from case challenges, to professional development and speaker series, to scholarships and funding for international experiences and research.
