Special Programs

Medallion Program

The International Business Medallion Program (IBMP) is designed for all business students who wish to enhance their international education by cultivating their understanding of global diversity, deepening their perspective on world issues, and preparing themselves for an entrepreneurial or organizational career in international business. The Medallion Program focuses on well-rounded engagement by earning points in three areas: Career Building, Global Citizenship, and Well-Being.

Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum level Medallions are determined by the points earned in each area. No academic credit is awarded in the Medallion Program. However, the skills and experiences developed by full participation are worth noting on a resume.

Conversation and Culture Pals

The Conversation and Culture Pals program is open to all business majors who are interested in meeting new people. We match native English-speaking students with international students for the opportunity to improve English and learn other languages. You can sign-up for a language or culture partner today!

This program is flexible and has no mandatory group meetings. Meet with your Conversation and Culture Pal on your own time to exchange language and culture while making a new friend. We try to match pals with similar interests and majors while considering your availability.
