Global Initiatives


  • First-Year Global Experience

    This program consists of a spring-semester course that counts as a business elective and that includes a class trip to an international destination. The course provides a meaningful global experience through an in-depth perspective of a set of industries and culture of a specific region outside the United States and a short academic trip (either during Spring Break or early May) to the region under study.

  • Global Seminars

    A global seminar is a three to five week course taught by a Leeds faculty member in a location outside of the United States where the business topics being covered can be directly observed and experienced. We currently offer global seminars in Beijing/Shanghai, Hong Kong, Cape Town, London, Maastricht, and Trivandrum (India).

  • Global Internships

    The global internship program consists of for-credit practical international experiences that typically occur during the summer. Internship opportunities are currently available in several locations in Australia, New Zealand and Chile, as well as London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Valencia (Spain).

  • Study Abroad

    Leeds collaborates with CU’s Study Abroad Office to offer a wide range of international opportunities. Through careful planning, students are able to study abroad without delaying graduation. Our study abroad partnerships cover the entire world and allow students to learn valuable business skills, such as cultural competence and leadership.

  • The Dean's Global Experience

    Affordable opportunities to participate in the CU-Boulder and Leeds School of Business global initiatives programs.

Our goal is to provide a variety of opportunities for global experiences and motivate all Leeds students to participate.

Look for the “Leeds 100% Global” symbol that identifies our programs.
