The world is your oyster

Global experiences don’t just add stamps to your passport. They also boost your resume.

Culture. Language. Religion. Climate. Laws. Currency. All of these affect how business is conducted in disparate parts of the world. That’s why employers are looking for grads with the cultural competency and cross-cultural understanding needed to navigate foreign markets.

And Tippie gives you countless ways to acquire these skills. Apply for a global internship in one of 11 destinations. Spend two weeks studying international business in London or Beijing. Study leadership in Northern Italy for an entire semester. Or build lifelong global connections here on campus. We've got it all and it's yours for the taking.
