NEW GENERATION OF FACULTY-LED PROGRAMS

CULTIVATING GLOBAL QUALIFICATIONS

CULTIVATING GLOBAL QUALIFICATIONS

The future career space will be defined by skills such as social mobility, adaptability, intercultural competence and focus on lifelong learning.

The experienced faculty wants to see that students gain more relevant knowledge, create meaningful global professional contacts that lead to job opportunities. That cannot be achieved through "easy academic traveling," visiting as many cities as possible, hunting for best photos or even having sleeping students at lectures. That's the last century approach.

Instead, we must involve the students in modern, practical study abroad programs, all thoroughly tailored to the specific needs of those who want to make significant investments into such life-changing experiences.

STRONG FOCUS ON EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

STRONG FOCUS ON EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Practical application is at the core of what we do.

By working closely together from the get-go, we will quickly get an understanding of your specific academic requirements, learning goals and priorities. We combine different topics and subjects to make our programs interdisciplinary, experience rich and thus suitable for a wider audience of students.

Be it customized visits to local or global, small or multinational businesses, roundtable discussions or expert-led workshops, through us, you get access to industry experts, business leaders, executives, professionals, and academics.

Keeping in mind the need for gaining one´s own unique personal experience, we strongly recommend incorporating the Global Consulting Experience into your course.

Slide 1

ONE WEEK STUDY PROGRAMS

A very intensive study program, usually consisting of introductory guest lecture and well-selected business visits that conveniently complement the business project assignment and topic. The core part of the short-term study stay is to present the consulting project findings and recommendations and to interact with the C-level executives. Due to a limited time to travel, it ususally allows for studying and visiting only one selected country.

TWO WEEK STUDY PROGRAMS

An intensive study program usually includes visiting two or three countries. The guest lectures, business meetings, and on-site cultural visits are precisely planned to respect academic goals but also a complex, limited time schedule. The longer period is ideal in terms of offering enough personal time for self-exploring and relaxation.

ONE MONTH STUDY PROGRAMS

This program type is usually residential and is great for students who want to test the waters of studying abroad. While being in one country, the students take university lectures enriched by selected guest speakers´ presentations, customized business meetings, and on-site cultural visits. Study activities are organized during the week days, keeping the weekend free for exploring other European countries.

SEMESTER – LONG STUDY PROGRAMS

This program is great for students who aren´t ready for full commitment of an entire year abroad but still want a complex and full-fletched international experience. The semester of studying abroad not only allows the students to retain a full course curriculum in a foreign environment but is a great way how to get to know and deeper understand the local culture, habits and lifestyle. Simply, to experience the country to the fullest.

Save time and energy when planning your study abroad program. With our 17+ years of experience in both organizing and planning programs, we know where it can go wrong and can help you to take the right path.

"Because of GIOBA, I had an exceptional experience in Prague! The GIOBA team ensures that you feel like a good friend or even like family during your stay in the Czech Republic. We got to learn so much about the country and the culture through presentations and cultural excursions, and found out a lot about the Czech working world during our business visits with knowledgeable and entertaining business professionals. If you want to have a great time in Prague along with expanding your knowledge, choose GIOBA! It's a trip to remember.

“In March 2004, we took 31 junior level business students to Prague for a week of both academic and travel activities. Our program in Prague was superbly planned and managed by GIOBA. They successfully combined economic lectures, visits to companies, historic tours, delicious meals, and a full day of interactive presentations and questions - all of which led the students to declare the weekend to be the highlight of their four-month Semester in London.

The interactive presentations involved our students' advising the managers of Czech companies regarding several strategic initiatives followed by lively give and take open discussions. As the Director of our London Program, I found the GIOBA partnership to be pedagogically robust, flexible, responsive, and highly cost effective. We are planning another study trip in Prague for the fall semester, again with GIOBA as our hosts and partners in what should be another wonderful learning experience “.
