Globalization Panels

Abbatiello commented, “This was a phenomenal opportunity to share my personal career and cultural experiences, and to learn from the exposure students have in their own journeys. It's clear VSB students are differentiated by their global experiences and I was honored to engage in the discussion.”   

The Globalization Panels reached more than 500 VSB freshman and transfer students in their first few weeks on campus through the Business Dynamics course, which emphasizes the overarching purpose of business within society and the manner in which business vision is actualized. The course provides context for students’ business learning experience and integrates global, political, ethical and technological dimensions of business. Business Dynamics serves as the first step in preparing students to become creative and innovative problem solvers, and seeks to develop analytical, business writing and presentation skills.
