Leeds Honors First-Year Global Experience (FGX)

Students in the Leeds Honors Program have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive FGX during the spring of their first year. FGX is a two-credit course that culminates in a 10-day trip abroad, historically to the United Arab Emirates. Throughout the spring semester, students are introduced to the key concepts of international business and gain an in-depth perspective on a specific country or region outside of the United States. The trip is designed to provide program members exposure to global business and markets, cultural differences, and geopolitical climates. FGX does not count towards the required Honors credits.
