The Freeman Foundation awarded another $400,000 grant to be administered by the Moran Center for Global Leadership, Villanova School of Business. Building on previous funding, this grant will continue to expand student participation in internships in East and Southeast Asia, a dynamic region with some of the world’s fastest changing economies, and an invaluable experience in today’s competitive global economy.
The grant is a continuation of the Freeman Foundation’s partnership with Villanova to create opportunities for students to study and work in key emerging global markets where they gain a competitive edge for future job opportunities.
“Developing new internship opportunities and leveraging relationships with Villanova alumni throughout Asia will significantly expand Villanova’s reach and broaden students’ perspectives about how business is conducted in another part of the world,” said Kim Cahill, director of the Moran Center for Global Leadership. “Students will experience a new culture and professional environment that will enhance their abilities and challenge their world perspective, and they will create a vast network of professional contacts that will prove invaluable in our increasingly interconnected world.”
