The world is your oyster

Global experiences don’t just add stamps to your passport, they boost your resume.

It's time to start thinking internationally. With support and encouragement from Tippie Rise, you can study business in a global location while learning about culture, language, religion, commerce, climate, and more. Observe and understand how cultural norms affect business practices. Broaden your world-view and boost your career, as many employers look for grads with cultural competency and cross-cultural understanding. It’s also worth noting that Tippie students who study abroad are frequently more academically prepared: they are more likely to have a higher GPA and graduate on time than those who don’t.

    Summer 2022:

    Introduction to Global Business: Northern Italy

    Join us on an innovative, virtual exploration of the business and culture of Italy though a remote “trip” that you can do from home. Our Italy-based instructor will guide you through an examination of the business, social, financial, and political happenings in Italy & the EU. Hands-on cultural events are infused throughout the class, using virtual reality headsets for city visits, live tours with interactive guides, a hands-on cooking class, language lesson, and more. The class will feature industry speakers and an opportunity to network with Italian students.

    Global Internships

    Internships abroad are available on-site or virtually!  Work with companies across the globe to support a variety of projects ranging from social media support to full business projects, website designs, market reports, financial assessments, usability testing code, and much more.
