Glavin Global Fellows Program

Glavin Global Fellows combine humanities and business approaches to critical thinking on global IMG_6970.JPGissues, language study and international experience. They also integrate Babson’s business and liberal arts education with international studies and proficiency in another language.

Benefits

  • Recognition that markets your global skills and language proficiency to employers
  • Coordination of global studies with experiential learning
  • Opportunities to compete for mini-grant funding for study or internship abroad
  • Involvement in special campus social and speaker events for GGF
  • Advisory support by the GGF Board of faculty, staff, and other advocates

Upon graduation, a GGF will have completed:

  • two or more courses in a foreign language
  • One advanced humanities elective (from the Arts & Humanities or History & Society Divisions) with an international or multicultural focus
  • One advanced elective in international economics
  • One advanced global business or law elective
  • An international experience: Internship, international study, or service learning experience abroad (or a U.S.-based experience with a multicultural focus). This includes developing an area of investigation (a critical question or issue to explore) and then reporting out upon your return as part of a fall or spring symposium
