The world is your oyster

Global experiences don’t just add stamps to your passport they boost your resume.

It's time to start thinking internationally. With support and encouragement from Tippie RISE, you can study business in a global location while learning about culture, language, religion, commerce, climate, and more. Observe and understand how cultural norms affect business practices. Broaden your world-view and boost your career, as many employers look for grads with cultural competency and cross-cultural understanding. It’s also worth noting that Tippie students who study abroad are frequently more academically prepared: they are more likely to have a higher GPA and graduate on time than those who don’t.
