The Institute for Global Business facilitates and leads the inaugural Sophomore Experience course at the CoB at UA


Students from different majors at The University of Akron participated in a first of its kind 1-credit course that helped them gain a better understanding of global competence aptitude, be able to identify their areas of strength and potential development, increase their awareness of cross cultural issues and improve readiness for proper positioning in international business situations. This course also provided them a chance to bond and network with their peers to prepare students to navigate cross-cultural interactions and international business situations.

A highlight of the course that the entire Saturday spent learning and interacting with the international immigrant community in the North Hill region of Akron. Overall it provided students with a rewarding and enriching experiential learning opportunity.
