To succeed in today’s increasingly complex, and interconnected world, CU Boulder graduates must be equipped with competencies that can be applied across diverse organizations, contexts, and cultures. 

Education Abroad

Why consider Education Abroad? The world is more globalized than ever with almost every organization, regardless of the job sector, containing some type of international component. What better way to grow the skills that will benefit your career than by studying abroad?

You’ll experience academics from new perspectives, improve your job prospects by gaining marketable global leadership skills and becoming more interculturally competent and it’s an incredible opportunity to travel, explore and broaden your experience and perspectives.

Search programs in “leadership” as the area of study or in your major and/or minor.

Internships Abroad

Completing an internship abroad provides students with the opportunity to combine experiential learning and academic theory as a means to gain professional experience and develop a new perspective on a career field. You will experience what it's like to navigate work culture in your host country and have the chance to expand your international network all while earning academic credit.

Peace Corps Prep & Peace Corps

Housed within the Center for Leadership, Peace Corps Prep is an undergraduate certificate program offering future U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer applicants sector-specific job skills, foreign language proficiency, intercultural competence, and professional leadership development skills. As an official Peace Corps Prep Program, earning the certificate is excellent preparation, and a likely advantage, for future Peace Corps Volunteer applicants.

The Peace Corps sends Americans with a passion for service abroad on behalf of the United States to work with communities and create lasting change. Volunteers develop sustainable solutions to address challenges in education, health, community economic development, agriculture, the environment, and youth development. Through their Peace Corps experience, volunteers gain a unique cultural understanding and a life-long commitment to service that positions them to succeed in today’s global economy.
