Global Competence

Our office aims to foster global learning opportunities for all our students through our comprehensive internationalization strategy. Our goal is to help every student develop global competencies. These competencies are marketable skills that will make our graduates stand out in today's job market and adapt better to multicultural work environments.

The Office of International Programs has developed two programs aimed to help our students prove the acquisition of global competencies to future employers:
