Broadening your global mindset isn’t limited to study abroad programs. The Smith School offers an abundant amount of opportunities to get involved in global learning while on campus – from internationally-focused classes to student clubs and speaker series. Join us, and get involved!
The Distinguished Speakers Series presents the latest trends in international business and provoke conversation among undergraduate and graduate students, policy experts, and business executives.

Every semester the Office of Career Services and Center for Global Business invite former study abroad participants to the “Leveraging Your Study Abroad Experience” workshop. The goal of this workshop is for students to reflect on their study abroad experience, analyze specific skills that they developed or enhanced while studying abroad, and develop techniques to use their study abroad experience in an interview and resume.
The program aims at developing a global awareness of the world’s business cultures, as well as learning business consulting concepts in international contexts. The fellows program is open to all business majors.
The Center for Global Business hosts the annual Global Showcase to give recently-returned study abroad participants the opportunity to create poster presentations and present to a panel of judges and guests. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn about global business while networking with classmates.
International Education Week is a great opportunity to celebrate international education and exchange throughout the world. The Smith School is thrilled to showcase our international reach and celebrate global learning on campus with a variety of events throughout the week.
