Virtual International Consulting Projects: Winter 2021- apps open

Virtual International Business and Consulting Projects in the Asia Pacific Region

Gain a deeper understanding of international business in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong through a virtual course and hands-on consulting project. In today’s business environment, it is essential to be able to adapt to working virtually. This experience will teach you how to work with an international client remotely while collaborating with a team to create real world business solutions for a company.

Program highlights:

  • Hands on experience with a global company- see project examples
  • Explore environmental factors that impact business in the fast-growing, dynamic region of the Asia Pacific
  • Learn about the socio-economic, technological, political, and legal factors impacting international trade in this region
  • 3 s.h. counts toward required Marketing major class OR International and Global Issues Gen Ed
  • Fulfill Tippie RISE

Programs will not involve international travel in Winter 2020. They will be entirely virtual and are approved to count for Tippie RISE.
