In order to change the world, we have to understand it…
Please consider a gift today to support student participation in Global Programs at the University at Buffalo School of Management.
The University at Buffalo School of Management houses one of the most robust programs for off-campus study in the State University of New York system. Since its inception in 2018, 364 students have travelled with Global Programs through 7 domestic experiences and 5 global opportunities offered annually.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, all programs have shifted to virtual learning experiences for the 2020-2021 academic year. The remote nature of our programs means it's possible for students to participate from around the world and apply their education through alumni engagement, cultural immersion, and project-based learning.
UB students gain new skills that are required in our interconnected society by embarking on a deeply personal journey of skill development and growth. In conjunction with partners in the United States and abroad, Global Programs hosted 68 students in the Fall 2020 semester -- a 30% increase from last year!
Your gift will directly help UB students grow, learn, and serve their communities around the world!
