Global Citizens Program

The Global Citizens Program is open to VSB freshman.

This sixteen week overseas study experience combines academic coursework with a practical internship located in either London or Singapore! This program is designed to offer a unique and life-altering academic experience to first year business students, thereby enabling participants to:

  • Challenge pre-conceived notions of the world
  • Test career assumptions early
  • Have the opportunity to study overseas later as a sophomore, junior, or first semester senior.

Global Leadership Fellows Program

Designed to provide students with an opportunity to emphasize and integrate global leadership throughout their undergraduate experience, the Global Leadership Fellows Program (GLF) includes special curricular and extracurricular offerings that encourage increased international study and support the pursuit of careers in global business. Students who fulfill the GLF Program requirements are awarded a certificate that names them life-long VSB Global Leadership Fellow.

Business and Culture in the Italian Context (BCIC)

BCIC is a semester study abroad program in Urbino, Italy, for VSB sophomores. Students complete VSB requirements while studying abroad, learning about the modern Italian economy and participating in a consultancy project for an Italian company. Students work towards an International Business co-major/co-minor and become a participant in the VSB Global Leadership Fellows Program.

International Business Co-Major/Minor

Students must take the International Business (IB) co-major in conjunction with their primary major within VSB. A minor in IB will supplement a business degree by providing cross-cultural skills valued by global companies.
