The Global Business Development Program is a collective effort by both the School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship and the Center for Global Engagement that works to utilize talented business students on global Business Development projects. Each year, the School of Business will send selected students overseas to assist in a new or upcoming business development venture. Not only will selected local students help perform business, financial and managerial due diligence; but more importantly, students will work with the teams in their respective countries to help maximize their impact. Through this venture, business students are afforded the opportunity to utilize and test their academic prowess and practical experience in real world business in a foreign business arena. Students will be paired with a team and spend several weeks in a foreign country working alongside locals and getting invaluable hands on international business experience. Students will be able to see international tax regulations, business laws, customs, and cultural differences that will distinguish them amongst their peers.
The mission of the International Business Development Program within the School of Business is to continue Liberty University’s commitment to training well rounded leaders in tomorrow’s workplace. The program will use the skills and information possessed by students to aid organizations around the world involved in business creation and development.
